Day Three

Today is set aside for an excursion to the San Historical living Museum in Grasshoek. The San (Bushmen) no longer live the way their forefathers lived, due to drought and the many new regulations set up by government with regards to hunting of wildlife. Hunting is regulated in Namibia and the San thus have no means to hunt as per their tradition. Government at present gives the San a little bit of money to live on but this is not enough to cover their day to day needs.

The San community at Grasshoek set up the Historical Living Museum up to generate an income for the community. Singing, dancing, traditional games, bow and arrow shooting, learning of past healing methods and ways of life of their fore fathers are the highlights of the day.
