Biharamulo District is one of the eight districts of the Kagera Region of Tanzania. It is bordered to the north by Karagwe District and Muleba District, to the east and south by Geita Region, to the west by Ngara District, and to the southwest by the Kigoma Region. Its administrative seat is Biharamulo town. Biharamulo Game Reserve is located within the borders of the district.

According to the 2002 Tanzania National Census, the population of the Biharamulo District was 410,794.[1]

According to the 2012 Tanzania National Census, the population of Biharamulo District was 323,486.[1] This decline in population can be explained from the fact that Chato District was split off from Biharamulo District in between the 2002 and the 2012 census.
