Lac Nokoue, Ganvie

See the one-of-a-kind lake spreading under the Venice of Africa, Lac Nokoue. Extending 11 km (6.8 mi) long and 20 km (12.4 mi) wide, the lake serves as a chief source of food to the town above it, as well as the main nesting site for many different species of birds. Take a guided canoe trip, or board one of the fishing boats to learn about the unique ways of fishing here. Alternatively, sit back on shore and admire the scenic view of the lake and nature around it.
