Nzulezo – Stilt village in Ghana

Posted on by Ollie Harrop

Second Ghana post, more to come..Here’s Nzulezo, a stilt village originally built 600 years ago and now home to almost 500 Ghanaians who survive on production of a local tree-sap based spirit that I was too scared to try and tourism. Being so isolated and close to the Ivory Coast border has led to the village having an interesting history steeped in myth. In return for a bottle of gin (!) we spoke at length with the chief about the problems there, which included a serious lack of education due to teachers only lasting a couple of months when posted there.
