Welcome to Rostock Ritz Desert Lodge

The Rostock Ritz Desert Lodge is one of Namibia’s most unusual desert lodges with it’s uniquely structured semi-subterranean rock igloos, built to have a minimal visual and ecological impact on the landscape.

The lodge is built on the slope of a hill overlooking the north the Rotstock Mountain range and in the southwest the colourful dune landscape of the Namib Desert (Namibia). The well known architect Mr. Piet Odendaal designed unique round structures blended into the granite surrounding. An often asked question is: "Why round?".

First of all to give it an African flair; further no roof structure was necessary (seasonal twisters are not uncommon in this region) and the "cave feeling" of the interior lets the guest feel secure in the wilderness of Namibia.


The farm "Rostock South" lies west of the large escarpment in the eastern region of the Namib Desert. Rainfall averages <100 mm per year, causing the rivers to run periodically. The Gaub (main river) streams westwards and joins the larger Kuiseb in the rocky Namib Naukluft Park.

Small fountains and rock pools are found in the river beds of the Gaub, Rotberg and Witberg river courses. Seasonal grass and perennial shrubs are common. Larger trees, mainly Acacias occur in the riverbeds.

In the southeast rises the Witberg (white mountain). It's name is derived from the white and weather resistant marble which forms the mountain ridge and builds the corona formation. Rotstock Mountain (red gneiss) borders the farm on the northern side and is our own "Aijas Rock" in the desert. A cave with Bushman paintings is found here. The rock paintings are still in relatively good condition and are approximately 1000 years old.

11 traditional African style round buildings with en-suite facilities and own balcony are naturally integrated in the surroundings and offer unlimited views across the Namib. An excellent choice for the ultimate African holiday.

Stay longer than a night and spoil yourself with the following activities:
A variety of well marked hiking trails catering for athletes and nature lovers
4x4 drive to historical bushman paintings hidden in the oasis cave
Sunset drive through the gorgeous Rostock landscape
Self-drive tour to Sossusvlei with the highest dunes in the world
Observe our meerkats and the desert fauna
Or simply relax at our pool.
