The district is located in the drought-prone region of the country, north of Mwenezi (District) and west of Masvingo (District). Consequently, like most districts in the province. Though the rains are not very reliable, the area is fertile with several irrigation schemes for the populace to supplement their mearge harvests. However the schemes are now in sorry state due to government neglect. There is ranching and wildlife which make life enjoyable and fruitful. It has many schools and noteworthy are Mission schools like Chibi High, Berejena Mission and other smaller schools which have produced brilliant students such as Arch Munaka. One graduate from this rural secondary school, Joshua Foromera is currently pursuing a degree in Neuroscience at Duke University in North Carolina, United States.
