Kitulo National Park is another one of those Tanzania safari gems… It is also known as the ‘Gardens of God’ and nature lovers and botanists call Kitulo the ‘Serengeti of flowers’. Visit this park if you are looking for a different kind of “Serengeti” safari. The Kitulo National Park lies in the Southern Highlands of Tanzania and is made up of alpine grasslands and montane forests. Kitulo lies in the Mbeya region and a small part of it is in the Iringa region. Within this protected Tanzania national park is the Kitulo plateau and the Livingstone Forest which is where most of the beautiful flowers are found. The Kitulo National Park is the first national park in tropical Africa to be established solely for the protection of flora. From every species to every colour, the flora in the Kitulo National Park is breathtaking and overwhelming… a stunning variety of orchids await the traveller. The Kitulo National Park is administered by TANAPA which protects the flora and promotes the growth of protected and rare orchids for international trade and, of course, to make the Kitulo National Park this special safari destination that it is…People from all over the world go to Kitulo to explore the forests and to capture stunning pictures of some rare orchids and other flowers.
