Stampriet’s history goes all the way back to 1898, when it was only a small trading post in the vastness of German South West Africa. Stampriet and its immediate vicinity was the site of many historical battles and events and evidence of these battles and events can still be found in the form of antique remains left behind by the people of that time. Some antiques can be seen in the Stampriet Historical Guest House.

The name “Stampriet” was originally #A#Ams in the Nàmá language. The # is a clicking sound. In the Nama language a reed is #Ab. A clump of reeds is #Ams. It was a fountain, a oasis in the dry country. The fountain was surrounded by a clump of reeds. The inhabitants flattened the reeds to make thinner strokes with which they braided shelters. From there the original name “Stamprietfontein” which later become just Stampriet.
