Central Tongu District (formerly North Tongu District) was, at the time of its establishment in 1989, known as Adidome District. The name was changed to the current one in response to agitation for a more unifying name. Geographically, the Central Tongu District shares common borders with South Tongu to the south east, Dangbe East and West Districts to the southwest and with Asuogyaman District to the west. To the north, the district is bordered by Ho Municipal and to the east by Akatsi District.
The Central Tongu District lies within the Tropical Savannah Grassland zone. The Volta River runs from the north to the south of the district roughly, dividing it into two equal parts with each half lying on the bank of the river.
