Kita is a town in western Mali. It lies on the eastern slope of Mount Kita (Bambara: "Kita-kuru"), known for its caves and rock paintings. Today, the city is known for its music, its annual Roman Catholic pilgrimage and its role as a processing center for the surrounding cotton- and peanut-growing region. Kita lies on the Dakar-Niger Railway and it the largest transit hub between Bamako (112 miles) and Kayes (205 miles).

Notable people from the town include the musician Kandia Kouyaté.

In November 1955, Kita became a commune of average exercise. On March 2, 1966, Kita became a commune of full exercise. The town grew in the 1990s around the cotton industry, but this has since declined.
