Named after Mount Napak, the district has a population of 142,224 people. It is 418 km by road from Kampala, and its main town is Lokiteded Town Council. The people speak the Ngakarimojong language.

These two groups share socio-economic practices like agropastpralism, subsistence crop production and semi-nomadic livestock rearing; but there are still some differences in their cultures.

Other economic activities here are: local brewing, stone quarrying and charcoal trade.
