Riemvasmaak Hot Springs,
Kakamas, Northern Cape

Riemvasmaak (pronounced ‘rim fus maack’) means ‘tighten the strap’ or ‘tied with straps’. Early in the 1900’s, the Bushmen who also lived in the area stole the community’s stock animals. These stock thieves were caught and tied to a large rock in the Molopo River with thongs or straps (called ‘rieme’ in Afrikaans). When the community people came to fetch the thieves the next morning, all they found were the straps left lying on the rocks. From then onwards, the area was known as Riemvasmaak and the community as the ‘Riemvasmaakers’.
