It is bordered by Ntinda to the north, Kyambogo to the northeast, Banda and Kireka to the est, Mbuya to the southeast, Bugoloobi to the south, Namuwongo to the southwest, Kololo in Kampala Central Division to the west and Naguru to the northwest. The road distance between Kampala's central business district and Nakawa is approximately 9.5 kilometres (5.9 mi).[1] The coordinates of Nakawa are:0°19'46.0"N, 32°36'52.0"E (Latitude:0.329450; Longitude:32.614445).[2]


Nakawa lies on the main highway between Kampala and Jinja. From a mere intersection of the Kampala-Jinja Highway and Ntinda Road in the 1950s, Nakawa has grown into a bustling metropolitan area with small, medium and large industries and some of Uganda's highest institutions of learning.
