Kitulo National Park

Kitulo (nicknamed “God’s Garden” or “Serengeti of flowers”) is the only national park recognized mainly for its abundance of flowering plant species. These include 45 types of orchid, many unique to Kitulo. Inhabiting the area are some of the world’s rarest butterflies and important bird species (including Denham’ bustard, blue swallow and mountain marsh widow).

The beautiful scenery of Kitulo National Park makes it a brooding and wintering attraction for various birds from Europe, West Africa, and South Africa and this just makes the park to be one of the favorite destinations for bird watching, while enjoying the beautiful sight of blooming flowers.
