Afobaka is a village in the district of Brokopondo that started to flourish in 1961 when the dam was built. It now forms an important transit port for the maroons that live in the villages along the Brokopondo Lake.

The Brokopondo lake was originally called the Prof. W.J. van Blommesteinmeer, named after his designer. When it was realized in 1965, some 5,000 Saramaccan Maroons were forced to move. The lake has a distinctive look because of the dead treetops that protrude above the water.
