Short Overview

One of the most important watersheds for the Great Ruaha River, Kitulo is well known for its floral significance – not only a multitude of orchids, but also the stunning yellow-orange red-hot poker and a variety of aloes, proteas, geraniums, giant lobelias, lilies and aster daisies, of which more than 30 species are endemic to southern Tanzania.

The first national park in tropical Africa to be set aside specifically for its floral significance, Kitulo National Park comes alive with colour between December and April each year as its fertile volcanic soils foster the growth of a vibrant rainbow of stunning flowers.

Sometimes called the Garden of God, Kitulo is only sparsely populated with big game such as the mountain reedbuck.

Where Kitulo excels is as a hiking and bird watching destination, making it a rare treat for those who are interested in flora or ornithology.
