In addition the town of Ghanzi offers a unique opportunity to learn more about the nomads of the Kalahari the San Bushmen and there is even a small local curio shop that sell the beautifully crafted ostrich egg shell jewellery that is still made by hand in the traditional way by the S an people. Just 30km out of Ghanzi on the road to Maun is the little village of Dekar it's here that one can find a small museum that highlights the history of the S an, this is also the home of many whose style of painting continues in the little workshop adjacent to the museum. Of interest too is the name Dekar itself, the name was created by putting two initials together D.E and K.R the initials were found carve
