Solitaire - Tropic of Capricorn - Swakopmund

Consisting of a fuel station, post office, small general dealer and a bakery, Solitaire may be small, but it sure lacks no character. After filling your belly with some of the best apple pie, your next stop is the Tropic of Capricorn. The board marking the tropic may be one of the most photographed boards in Namibia, followed closely by the Namibian border signs (which are technically prohibited), but people manage to sneak one or two in. Swakopmund has become the adventure capital of Namibia, while the city of Windhoek is the Capital.

Interesting Facts

The Namibian Dollar was introduced in September 1993, and although the South African Rand can be used in Namibia, the Namibian Dollar can't be used in South Africa.

Climate Conditions

Namibia's climate is typical of semi-desert terrain, with hot days and cool nights and an average of 300 days of sunshine per year. Only during the summer months from November to February does rain occur, mostly as heavy thunderstorms. Then the usually dry riverbeds become saturated with torrents of muddy water in a very short time. On all our tours, it's best to bring warm clothing - raincoat, warm hat, socks etc. - as across Africa wet/dry and hot/cool climatic periods change invariably.
