The village of Ambobaka is located along the Ramena River in the northwest of Madagascar. From Ambanja to Ambobaka it is about 19 kilometres along a dirt road.
Amongst the locals of the region, Ambobaka is well known for its traditional healers using medicinal plants growing in the area. There is also a small hospital specialised in healing broken bones and sprains using medicinal plants (L' Hopital Jaosidy Don Naturel).
A short pirogue trip on the Ramena River takes one to the Bon Pères cascade.
The main part of the village is located after the bridge coming from Ambanja.
