The District is situated on the northern part of the Eastern Region. It shares common boundaries with the Kwahu North to the east, Kwahu South to the south and the Fanteakwa Districts to the southeast and Asante-Akim North of the Ashanti Region to the north. Thus the District is linked up with many Districts and this promotes commercial activities among the District capitals and other nearby communities.
