Muyenga

Muyenga is located to the south of downtown Kampala, just a short distance away. The hill rises up to Tank Hill Road and overlooks Nakivubo Swamp with views to Bugolobi on one side and Lake Victoria and Makindye to the other. Muyenga isn't yet developed as much as some other Kampala suburbs, though a range of accommodation exists from apartments to houses with large compounds. Accommodation here is currently cheaper than many other suburbs. On the other hand, you'll have more limited access to facilities, though pharmacies, gyms, restaurants and cafes can be found within the suburb and a large supermarket is in nearby Nsambya.

Traffic & Transportation

Muyenga has few exit roads from the suburb, particularly travelling towards the centre of Kampala, which involves crossing the railway line. This results in traffic congestion to and from town during rush hour. It can take an hour just to travel a few kilometers.

Environment

The area itself is quiet and there are good views from some locations to the lake.

Amenities

It has a few nice restaurants, and several small supermarkets, with larger supermarkets just a short drive away. Close to Muyenga you'll find Kabalagala, a strip lined with pubs and cheap restaurants, very popular with the locals, as well as with expats.

Schools

Muyenga High School, Bumble Bee Pre-School, Heritage International School and Rainbow International School is in nearby Kansanga.
