Ganvie Budget Safaris
The houses in Ganvie stand on stilts and the inhabitants move around in small boats. The market is also on the water and people carry out their business by boat.
The floating market is right in the centre of the town and most of the sellers are women. They sit in their canoes and sell anything from fruit and vegetables to meat, fish, wood for cooking and the fabrics to hardware and pottery.
Due to low cost of living and a simple lifestyle, Ganvie budget safaris are both affordable and achievable. Seafood is especially delicious and fairly cheap, with fresh shrimp, fish, crab oysters and mussels harvested each year.
