We just can't get enough of Namibia at Where It All Began - and who can blame us?
Whilst building a trip for Swiss family this month, we came across the newly-built Solitaire site. This is a tiny settlement on the borders of the Namib-Naukluft which is the largest game reserve in Africa (yes, bigger than the Kruger, bigger than the Serengeti and Masai Mara) and is in total about the size of Switzerland.
Solitaire is one of the few places that allows to visit this vast wilderness with relative ease and comfort (over 70% of the park is inaccessible by vehicle).
Located within striking distance both of Windhoek (the capital and main airport) and also the coast and Sossusvlei, they offer superb and affordable accommodation, really good and varied food, air conditioning, hot air balloon safaris, cycling and hiking as well as 4x4 trails into the reserve.
