Solitaire Country Lodge
is located in the North Namib
in the Southwest
region of Namibia
Situated adjacent to the fuel stop and general store that constitutes the desert outpost of Solitaire, this relatively commercial roadside hotel is part of a chain of 'country lodges' across Namibia.
The 25 guest rooms are located around three sides of a quadrant, looking inward over a large swimming pool, whilst the fourth side is taken up by the glass-fronted dining room, with bar beyond.
There is an 8km hiking trail signposted from the lodge.
Solitaire Country Lodge is a reasonably pleasant and reliable place, but one whose attractiveness is unquestionably compromised by its location.
Hard to imagine why one would build this into a trip except in the event that all the higher rated accommodation is fully booked. More likely used as a spontaneous stopover for travellers without a fixed plan.
