Bukoba is located in the Kagera province of which it also is the capital. Bukoba lies only 1 degree south of the equator. From Bukoba a ferry sails to Mwanza which is located further to the south. The city is situated on a flat plain between several hills which protect the city from extremes in weather. Bukoba has a tropical monsoon climate. The climate has only been classified as a tropical monsoon climate because precipitation figures are slightly lower than 60 millimeters in July, otherwise it would have been classified as a tropical rainforest climate.
