Kololo is close to the centre of Kampala, bordered by Naguru to the east, Bukoto to the north, Mulago to the northwest, Makerere to the west, Nakasero to the southwest and Kibuli to the south. Kololo lies in Kampala Central Division. The coordinates of Kololo are:0°19'46.0"N, 32°35'41.0"E (Latitude:0.329445; Longitude:32.594725).[1]


Starting in the 1950s, before Uganda's Independence, Kololo has been an upscale residential area, due to its central location in the city and to the spectacular views that the hill offers. Kololo is a popular location for Diplomatic Missions to Uganda, housing more than a dozen Embassies and Ambassadors' residences.[2]

During the 2000s, hotels, banks, hospitals and other corporate entities have begun to infiltrate the hill, mainly to serve the elite who reside there, away from the noise and traffic congestion in the central business district located on the neighbouring hill called Nakasero.[3] At the summit of the hill, there are radio, television and telecommunication masts.
