Afrikaans name: Soebatsfontein
Soebatsfontein is a tiny village in a semi-arid area of the Northern Cape province in South Africa. It has a population of less than 300 people. The translation of the towns name from Afrikaans is 'fountain of pleading' which arose from a violent incident in the late 1890's. A farmworker was killed by San people even though he begged for his life.
The Skilpad Wild Flower Reserve is located nearby and is a great place to visit during the spring flower season.
