Banaadir is bordered by the Somali regions of Middle Shebelle (Shabeellaha Dhexe) and Lower Shebelle (Shabeellaha Hoose), as well as the Indian Ocean.

"Banaadir" is derived from the Persian bandar, which means "port" in reference to the coastal cities of Mogadishu and Barawa. The place name reflects the region's medieval position as a key trade center with Persia and the Arabian peninsula. Banaadir is also known for its local breed of goats.[2]

Its capital is Mogadishu, although the administrative region itself is coextensive with the city. Banaadir is much smaller than the historical region of Benadir, which covers most of the country's central and southern seaboard opposite the Indian Ocean and up to the Juba River, including Mogadishu.

Banaadir is the smallest of Somalia's eighteen administrative regions (gobols).

Yusuf Hussein Jimaale serves as the current Governor of Banaadir, as well as the Mayor of Mogadishu.
