Stampriet is a water-rich oasis situated on the banks of the Auob River and the gateway to the red dunes of the Kalahari Desert in south-eastern Namibia. The village is well known for its artesian wells and the majestic palm trees growing in the area. The history of Stampriet dates back to 1898 when it the village was a small trading post in the outback of the then German South West Africa. Many historical battles were fought here, and other events took place in the immediate vicinity.
