Travelling North from The Gambia via Touba and St. Louis in Senegal
across the Daima Barrage into Mauritania and through the Diawling National Park - November 2005

Overnight camping was warm and comfortable enough .. but oooh how noisy the insects were !!

Two of the local grazing residents coming to investigate the Toubab campers.
The twin towers of the Grand Mosque at Touba can be seen in the distance to the far right

The Diama Barrage .. the most westerly border crossing point from Senegal into Mauritania
