MengoMengo is found in Kampala district on one of its hills in Lubaga division. It’s bordered by Nsambya hill to the east, old Kampala to the north, Lubaga hill to the west, Kibuye to the southeast, Namirembe hill to the north and Ndeeba to the south. It lies approximate 2.5km by road directly south of the central business center of Kampala. The peak of Mengo hill is 12210m asl.  On Mengo hill is where the main palace commonly known as Lubiri of the Kabaka of the Buganda kingdom, a monarchy that dates back to 800 year is found. This Lubiri is 4 square miles (10km) and is ringed by a 6 ft brick fence with a small air strip inside
 The word 'Mengo' is a Luganda word for Grinding stone. Legend has it that the ancient communities from Ssese islands who settled here used these stones to grind there food. Mengo hill is also joined with the adjacent Namirembe hill, the seat of the Anglican church of Uganda because of the monarchy’s close association with the Church of England. Bulange which houses the offices of the Kabaka and the Lukkiko (Buganda’s parliament) is located at the base of the Namirembe hill. In Mengo we find various other tourists site apart from the Buganda kingdom, we have Mengo hospital, a 300 bed hospital affiliated by the church of Uganda, the joint research clinic, the buildings of the Uganda Supreme Court, the Uganda museum and many more.
