Historically Kyotera district was curved off Rakai District on July 1st, 2017. It comprises two counties of Kyotera and Kakuuto with nine Sub Counties and five town councils.

In terms of topography, Kyotera District is covering an area of approximately 98.83square Kilometers. It is composed of undulating terrain of flat- topped hills. The valleys are occupied by about six regimes of natural drainage channels that form administrative boundaries. In peri- urban areas, the topography is the major factor in determining the land use in that the valleys are mainly used for subsistence agriculture, while upper slopes are used for residence.
