Some 10 km north of
Mariental, the C20 heads east into the Kalahari Desert towards the small
cattle town of Aranos. En route it passes Stampriet, a small settlement
where thanks to artesian water flowing in from the Kalahari, fruit and
vegetables are cultivated. At Stampriet, the C15 heads south along the Auob
River towards Gochas. Along this route lie a number of battle sites and
memorials dating back to the 1904-1907 war of resistance against the
Germans. South of Stampriet, 20 km along the C15, is the farm Gross Nabas,
the sight of one of the bloodiest battles of the war. A small monument on
the main road commemorates the battle of 2-4 January 1905, during which the
Witbooi Nama inflicted heavy losses on the German forces.
