Kabula is located 178 kilometers from Kampala. It is bordered by Kooki to the South, Mawogola to the North and Buddu to the West. Its head is “Lumaama” with its headquarters in Lyantonde. Kabula was part of Ankole, but after the religious wars between Christians and Muslims the Omugabe of Ankole, Ntare, gave it to the Kabaka as a place for him to settle his people who had been displaced by the wars. Majority of
the people in the county are farmers and cattle keepers. The title given to the county chief is Lumama.

Kabula functions as a gateway to other tourist destinations but also has a number of tourism sites ranging from cultural, historical, natural, wildlife and agro among others.
