On our way from Sesriem to our next campsite at Tsondab Valley we came across this small community in the middle of nowhere. Old rusting cars to look at and photograph, fuel, a restuarant, helpful staff and Moose MacGregor's Bakery!! The variety of bakery items available was great and large portions meant that cake and coffee was all we needed for lunch. We enjoyed it so much we took away a second helping of the apple pie to enjoy for our evening treat!! A wonderful find. Oh.... and the ground squirrels around the car park were great to watch too!

My family and friends visited Solitaire from 20- 23 December 2013 ! Real Namibian Hospitality , real food and not to mention the fantastic apple pie and Velvet cake at the Bakery. We arrived at the Lodge with a flat tyre and enjoyed quick and friendly service at the Gas station, The management made time to meet with the guests .Our visit to Sossusvlei was well coordinated largely due to the good advice - Note its vital to arrive early enough at Sossusvlei to make it worth it ,before the sun heats up the Dunes.

The rooms were great with high quality linen .It was great seeing the waiter whistling to the music while attending to the bar .

Solitaire Country lodge is a great venue as it is a 1 stop shop for all - meals, accommodation, fuel, tyre repairs, leisure and real African hospitality

In the middle of the desert, a great bakery with big portions. Well worth a stop even if you are not camping here but are just driving by.

What a find. The only petrol stop for around 100 miles. When travelling from Seisreim to,Walvis Bay & Swakopmund you come across this little gem. Moose Mcgregor has a petrol station a village store and an amazing bakery. The only stop,for miles around he does a roaring trade. Famous for their massive slices of Apple pie. So good I went back two days later for some more. A great refreshment stop and fun to see all the old wrecked cars buried in the sand as you drive in.

The apple pie is world famous. The bear claws as we say in the states, or pigs ears, as Moose calls it, are divine. This place would be famous in hipster Brooklyn, too :)
