Tarime District is one of the six districts of the Mara Region of Tanzania, East Africa. It was previously known as the "North Mara District". It is bordered from the north to east by the Kenyan districts of Migori, Trans Mara and Kisii, and to the east by the Maasai Mara game reserve. To the south it is bordered across the Mara River by the Musoma Urban, Musoma Rural and Serengeti districts, and to the west by Rorya District.

According to the 2002 Tanzania National Census, the population of the Tarime District was 492,798.[1]


As of 2002, the Tarime District was administratively divided into forty-one wards:[1]

Since the separation off of Rorya District in 2007,[3] Tarime District has been reduced to fewer wards.
