Rosta was born in 1976 and grew up in Czechoslovakia, where after completing primary and secondary school, he went to Technical College to become a car/truck mechanic.    

  In 1999 he came to Namibia on holiday, and fell in love with the country.  He realized whilst on holiday, that this is where he wanted to live and work, in some way engaged in conservation and tourism. He returned briefly to the Czech Republic and came back to Namibia, where in 2000 he was for 3 months working at the Skeleton Coast Camp, driving water to the camp for the guests and the staff. He, then moved to Swakopmund for a couple of years, where he became involved in the tourism industry, and then moved back to Windhoek, where he started leading his first overland safaris across Namibia as a qualified Namibian National Tour Guide for Wild Dog Safaris. 

  In 2004 he decided to join the Wilderness Safaris and has since then spent three years guiding in all the many remote areas that WS operates in. In 2007 Rosta was promoted to Explorations Guide, leading high-end journeys across the country and through the lodges and camps of Namibia.

Rosta is passionate about all aspects of the bush. On his days off he is usually to be found on guide training courses, helping out or participating, doing bird counts or studying anything related to the wilderness. He still often helps out with guiding in the lodges and camps too. His general knowledge of Namibia is very good, and he has completed the Namibian Academy of Tourism and Hospitality Badge I, as well as all three levels of guide training with Wilderness Safaris Namibia. Rosta is currently studying for the Field Guides Association of South Africa Level II.
