While passing by Solitaire, we as well decided to stop for a coffee and apple-pie. We enjoyed it, took another coffee and while walking around we decided to see whether we could spend the night in Solitaire.
That turned out to be the only right decision! We went to Solitaire Guest Farm and stayed on campside #1. It is extremely large with your own showers, toilet, sink, light and power. Of course a fireplace and braai as well.
The people are very friendly and help you with all the information you want. The view is just amazing. Thinking back, this is the most special place I have ever been to. Definitely climb the small hill in the evening for the sunset. Sitting there, hearing nothing, high grass moving by the wind together with a great view; it made it the perfect sunset! The best ever.
The area is beautiful to explore by 4x4 and to drive the pass is definitely recommendable. But ask the staff about the details, to make sure you get the best out of it.
