  Herding sheep along the river
by grets

Livestock is of great commercial importance to Mali, and after Nigeria, Mali has the greatest number of goats, sheep and cattle in West Africa.

All along the river we saw great herds of all the above animals, plus camels grazing, men fishing, little villages etc. It was a afscinating experience to see life go on as it has for centuries as we float by in our boat.
