An insightful day trip to soak in all that Cotonou and Ganvie have to offer. Don’t missout on a visit to the Dantokpa Market and the Artisans Center in Cotonou. Also visit one of the highlights of any trip to West Africa, Ganvie, the “Venice” .
A 500-year-old village on water lying in Lake Nokoué, with a population of around 20,000 people, it is probably the largest lake village in Africa. The village was established in the sixteenth or seventeenth centuries by the Tofinu people, established on the lake because the Dahomey’s (a slave trading tribe) religion forbade the Fon warriors from entering water, therefore the lagoon was a safe territory for other tribes.
