It is a low-lying coastal area in the mangrove swamp region of the Niger Delta, with a few feet above the mean sea level, located very close to the Atlantic Ocean. The area is drained by a network of rivers such as san Batholomew, Aguda Toru, Santa Babara etc.

Kula can be relatively traced back to 1400CE with two main groups from Southern Iselema, and Engenni, of present-day Delta State and Ahoada West Local Government Area of Rivers State respectively.
Opu-Kula the set of Ijaw settlers from Southern Iselema was used as the capital of the ancient kingdom. And Ada Sara with his groups from Engenni, called for the amalgamation of the 14 communities as a way to mitigate oppressions, attacks and get a better settlement.
The local political structure is organized around a monarchical system of government headed by the King (Amanyanabo) with a Council of Chiefs (Alapu or Ala-siri) that assists in the administration of the kingdom. Although for administrative, economical and intermarriage reasons Kula is now classified as part of Kalabari, Kula kingdom was in existence before the coming of the Kalabari people. With its traditional seat founded by His Greatness, King Sara 1 (ADA-SARA or ADAYE-SARA), the originator of the dynasty that bears his name, many kings have ruled and reigned who defended the expansive territories which spanned to Opukiri in the North and extended to Owuanga-toru and Anwo-bio thereby maintaining the growth and development of Kula to her present status. The incumbent Amanyanabo (King) is King (Sir) Dr Kroma Amabibi Eleki from the famous Adaye-Sara dynasty of Kula. King Kroma Eleki was installed on January 31, 1982..
leadership structure has the Amanyanabo-in-Council, King (Sir) Dr Kroma Amabibi Eleki-Sara XIV at the helm of affairs.
