The village of Ampokafo is located along the old "smuggler's path" connecting Maroantsetra with Antalaha. Just next to the village is a river, ideal for bathing and washing as there is no running water in Ampokafo.
The village has several shops, a church, a school and two very basic hotels, of which Hotel Esperante might be the better choice. At the east end of the village is a cinema, showing mainly action films. The owner also recharges batteries against a fee.
