Cattle crossing the River Gambia near Basse Santa Su (1)
 The Gambia - West Africa

Following well-worn tracks through the bush .. we looked down .....

..... on the glorious sight of Fula herdsmen, ferrying a herd of cattle across the river.

Calves were loudly calling to their mothers on the far bank .. click the to hear the sounds of the calves and my quick 'umhuh' when asked if my camera had video !!  

We walked towards the top of the riverbank where the cows were standing .....

..... and looked down on a small ferry boat, fully loaded with passengers and goods.

I wonder how many cows they can get in there?  I naively thought, as it set off for the far shore.
