Solitaire Namibia

In Namibia (once known as South-West Africa) between Sossusvlei and Walvis Baai, there is a quirky, iconic place known as Solitaire.

Situated right in the exact middle of nowhere is this crossroads with a gas pump, bakery, and toilet.

If you’ve ever seen photos of old cars broken down in the African desert, half swallowed by sand dunes, this is where they were taken.

An interesting cross between last chance outpost and tourist trap, Solitaire is definitely worth a visit and a photo or three if you’re in the neighborhood.
