Nicknamed by some as the "Venice of Africa," the floating village of Makoko in Lagos, Nigeria, is home to people who not only live on water, but depend on it for their livelihood. The area is still considered an informal settlement with very limited government presence. CNN's Errol Barnet visited Makoko for the Inside Africa show.
