Excerpt: Bombo, Uganda - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Bombo is located approximately 35 kilometres (22 mi), by road, north of Ugandas capital, Kampala.

The coordinates of the town are:00 34 40N, 32 32 42E (Latitude:0.5777- Longitude:32.5450). Bombo is one of three town councils in Luweero District, the other two being Luweero and Wobulenzi.
