Western Region

Nzulezu (Village on Stilt)

Written by 

One of the natural attractions you don't want to miss when you happen to be in the Western Region of Ghana is the Nzulenzu village.

The whole of this wonderful village sits on stilts and its amazing how the inhabitants of this town have a normal every day life just like people on dry land.

Nzulenzu is located on the north side of the Beyin. Beyin is a transit town for tourists arriving from either Takoradi or Elubo(Ivory Coast border). It is a community of about 500 people living life to the fullest. The entire village is built across a lagoon completely on stilts. The depth of this lagoon depends largely on the season and this can be between 4ft-8ft deep.

You start your journey from Beyin by hiring a canoe which is very cheap and can be shared with other tourists or inhabitants if you're alone.  Every canoe has a guide who paddles it and at the same time tell you stories about the origin of the village.  nzulenzuIts a jolly ride of about 20-30mins before you arrive at the Nzulenzu village.  

The canoe service is organized by the Ghana Wildlife Society and the  service runs between 8am-3pm daily, except Thursdays which is observed as a sacred day. wooden buildings in nzulenzuThe wetland around the village has the largest stand of intact swamp forest in Ghana.  This is a home to a variety of animals like monkeys.

Its an eye opener attraction for every body visiting Ghana. So don't be left out.
