Nzulenzu Stilt Village, Ghana

Believed to have been in existence for more than 400 years, Nzulenzu, an Nzema (one of the tribes in Ghana) word that means ‘surface of water’ is home to over 600 people.

The inhabitants of the village are said to have migrated from Walata, a city in the ancient Ghana Empire, the earliest of the Western Sudanese States.

According to tradition, ancestors of the village were brought to their present place by a snail. Still a very traditional community, its people still adhere to norms and taboos. On Thursdays, a day regarded a sacred day on the lake, the villagers do not engage in any strenuous activity.
