Some of the most interesting activities to enjoy and things to do in and around this small settlement include the Tropic of Capricorn Sign, and the ever exciting Solitaire Guest Farm Desert Ranch. The ranch is a site where the Namib Carnivore Conservation Center is stationed and thus draws in much traffic from teams of researchers and interested tourists within the town and around the area. Called as a pit stop by many, Solitaire is in a strange way, famous for its baking and gas station services which are nowhere to be had elsewhere, for miles around.
