Scenes of the Diawling National Park - Mauritania - November 2005

Our first view of Mauritania's enormous Diawling National Park after crossing the Diama Barrage

A large flock of pink Lesser Flamingos and a strange "cloud formation" in the distance

Always prepared for any eventuality .. Roeland studying the Flamingos with high powered binoculars.

This view the surface of the raised road that we followed for many kilometres

A family of Wart Hogs crossed the road too quickly to get a photo of .. this large Monitor Lizard nearly escaped as well .. running so quickly it was kicking up a dust cloud behind it !!
