Manufahi District is one of the districts of East Timor. It has a population of 52,246 (2010 census) and an area of 1,323 km2. The capital of the district is Same. The subdistricts are Alas, Fatuberlio, Same, and Turiscai.

During its time as a Portuguese colony, the district was called Same, after the capital city. It was the epicentre of the Great Rebellion of 1910–12. During the Indonesian occupation the subdistrict Hato-Udo was split off from the district and joined to Ainaro, and the subdistrict Turiscai, previously in Ainaro, was moved to Manufahi.

Manufahi lies on the south coast of East Timor, on the Timor Sea. It borders Manatuto District
