Details of Kitulo National Park

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 games 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.
