We were recommended to stop at the Solitaire Bakery before taking the really terrible and bumpy road to Walvis Bay....and we are glad we did. It was a wonderful cool shady stop, with a lively vibe, plenty to look at and very busy. We loved...More

Solitaire.....for years all visitors driving to and from Sossusvlei have stopped here, in the middle of nowhere!!! Twenty years ago when I first stopped, there was little more than a shop with a petrol tank outside. It was the place where I saw my first...More
