Solitaire Lodge

The Lodge . . 

Our 25 spacious rooms wrap around a courtyard pool and delightful desert garden. All rooms are fully air-conditioned and feature two double beds, en-suite bathroom with shower, and an outdoor seating area. Our two family rooms each include two additional twin beds, sleeping up to 6 persons.

There is free WIFI at various points across the property. Shaded thatch lapas invite lounging by the pool, with many activities available for those who like to stay busy.

Guests enjoy breakfast and dinner at Cafe van der Lee and can watch the sunset from our open-air bar. Sit back and relax as this historic little village becomes a quiet, star-filled oasis after dark. Contact Solitaire reservations directly for more information about our SADC rates.
