A tiger in Africa?
The name of our farm "Tigerquelle" (direct translation into English would be tiger fountain) is based on a mistranslation from the colonial period about 110 years ago. Boers, who settled in the area at that time called the farm land Tierfontein in their language. Tier means leopard in Afrikaans which is very close to Tiger in German. The German colonial forces, which took over the farm during their time in South West Africa, didn't translate the word tier fountain into Leopard fountain which would be right, but into Tiger fountain. Thus we come to our name "Tigerquelle".
