Cotonou, Benin - Timelapse / Hyperlapse

A timelapse and hyperlapse film by Mayeul Akpovi
Cotonou in Motion – Visit around Cotonou.

– Cotonou (Benin, Africa)
– Ganvié (Benin, Africa)

Cotonou is the largest city and economic centre of Benin, although Porto-Novo is the capital.
Every time I have to talk about Cotonou, I usually have in mind its minimalist architechture, its road traffic with Zemidjan (motorcycle taxis), its international market (Dantokpa), its beaches and one of its best animated tourist suburbs (Ganvié, a lagoon city, better known as the African Venice) … That’s the background images in my mind. Enjoy!
