Nzulezu Stilt Village nzulezu boater (©1998 Kathryn Buren)

Nzulezu Stilt Village is an amazing community built entirely on stilts in the middle of Lake Tadane. All structures are suspended over the water and transport is only by canoe. The excursion to Nzulezu involves a fascinating canoe trip through the reed beds and across the lake.

While in the area you can visit Fort Apollonia at Beyin, take a canoe trip up the scenic Ankasa River, go on an expedition with local fishermen or explore the nearby town of Beyin. There are basic, local-style guesthouses in both Beyin and Nzulezu, with bucket baths and meals on request.

Nzulezu is about 90 kilometres from Takoradi and is best approached from Beyin. Visitors are welcome every day except Thursdays which are sacred.
