Nzulezo stilt water settlement
A village in the Jomoro District in the Western Region of Ghana lies on fresh water and holds a breathtaking experience. The village’s name Nzulezo means water surface and you will find in this village a strong construction of stilt-supported structures over water where normal community life such as schooling, plying, burial and others goes on.
This site is one of the few ancient settlement on stilts and platforms still left in the world. You would be surprised to know that the main activity of the inhabitants of this village is agriculture not fishing so the reason behind their chosen habitat remains a mystery to you until you visit the village and find out.
Enjoy a forty-five to one-hour boat or canoe ride on the safe Amansuri Wetland, a ramsar site and the largest inland swamp forest in Ghana to Nzulezo Village as you watch some birds such as African Jacana and observe the fishes as they move freely in the water beneath (side attraction for early morning visitors).
There is a guest house and food joints at Nzulezo to cater for the needs of those who want to stay to experience community life over water. Don’t forget to take a shady hat for the canoe ride, bottled
water, sunglasses, your camera for photographs as you wear your sneakers and some light clothing for the trip. Take note that, Thursdays are very sacred so the village does not welcome visitors.
Board a bus at Takoradi transport station heading towards Elubo, alight at Allabokanzo junction, pick Nzulezo bus and alight at Amansuri.
