Description [ correction ]

The name of this small village ('fountain of pleading') comes from a spring in the middle of the village. Legend has it that a man named Hendrik Stievert pleaded for his life here, but was subsequently murdered by a group of San (Bushmen) in 1798. Soebatsfontein was also the place where local church was held since the 1870's. There is a campsite available here (without ablution facilities) under some trees. Nearby are the spring and some old gardens. Also close to the camping site is the quartzveld - an area where quartz is found in abundance.
