This location is approximately 1.7 kilometres (1.1 mi), by road, north of Kampala's central business district.[2] The coordinates of Naakulabye are:00 19 30N, 32 33 36E (Latitude:0.3250; Longitude:32.5600).


Naakulabye is a working-class neighborhood, centered around the confluence of the Kampala-Hoima Road Southbound, Kampala-Hoima Road Northbound, Makerere Hill Road and Balintuma Road. There is a busy farmers market, numerous shops, bars and restaurants. Near the main roads, there are decent buildings. including several high-rise student hostels. As one ventures deeper into the neighborhood, the environment degrades into one of Kampala's biggest slum. Crime is high in the area, consistent with similarly congested, low-income areas of Kampala.[3]
