Rotstock becomes Rostock

Rostock Ritz Desert Lodge is nestled comfortably against the slope of a mountain, comprising a row of detached guest rondavels, the main building and a lapa with a swimming pool. Embedded harmoniously into this untouched landscape, the lodge is hardly visible to the untrained eye, coming from the main road which leads towards the south, to turn onto the farmroad, which leads to Rostock Ritz. Initially named “Rotstock”, this area has been named after the so called Rotstock Mountains to the north, comprising large amounts of red Gneiss. Rotstock has lost a letter along the way in the 60’s, when farm divisions took place and is today known as “Rostock”.

In this harsh and arid desert region, farming is neither substantial nor reliable. No hunting activities are carried out on this proud piece of land, enabling our guests to observe herds of zebras and springbuck, ostriches, oryx and leopards, as well as cibets and a variety of other mammals and birds. A waterhole close to the lodge draws a variety of game to be observed in the golden rays of light, which flood the plains, just before the sun decides to set behind the mountain range.
