Map of Ganvie

Interested in an unusual lifestyle and people who live in houses on stilts? Ganvie is a large lake village built in the middle of a lagoon. It is on Lake Nokoué, Benin, West Africa,  and sometimes called the Venice of Africa. Not only it's houses - all it's shops and restaurants are on stilts too. People living there go about their daily lives travelling from place to place on boats. We went in search of maps of the area, and came up with these.
