The people of the Wild Coast are pastoralists and cattle in particular play a very important social and economic role in their society. The number of cattle held by a village or individual determines much of their importance to the rest of the world. These animals are used as a bride’s dowry, or Lobola as it is known here.

The sight of cattle walking on the beach is quite distinctive along the Wild Coast. We had to wait until our last day of our trip before we were able to capture this unique spectacle.
