The town lies in the middle of Zambia, next to the borders with Copperbelt Province. The homonym district borders with the ones of Chibombo, Chisamba, Kabwe, Luano, Masaiti, Mkushi, Mpongwe and Ngabwe.
Kapiri Mposhi has two railways stations, a TAZARA Railway station that connects it to Dar-es-Salaam and a Zambia Railways stations that connects it to Lusaka and Livingstone. The TAZARA Railway station is considerably larger and more modern than the Zambia Railways station.
Just north of the town, there is a major junction, with the road north to Mkushi, Serene, and the Tanzanian border going north-eastwards, and the road to the Copperbelt heading to the north west. This, combined with the railway links, makes Kapiri Mposhi an important point in the regional freight network.
Most shops and businesses in Kapiri Mposhi can be found along the main road and include a bakery, Agricultural Equipment shop CAMCO EQUIPMENT (Z) LTD, Pep, Shoprite, LK Motors and Barclays bank.
