Makalani is the name given to a certain palm tree, growing in northern Namibia (Southern Africa). The seeds look like small coconuts, and the local people, the Owambos and Himbas, peel the outer ginger looking skin and carve the inner hard core to certain objects of art. The inner core is white with a dark brown skin, the size of a golf ball, and it is hollow inside. The Makalani fruit (Ondunga/Onduga)is very useful to the local people as it can be eaten and used for arts and crafts.
