Kitulo Plateau National Park

Welcome To Kitulo Plateau National Park

Kitulo Plateau National Park is located on the Kitulo Plateau in the remote southwest corner of Tanzania on the Zambian outskirt. The park is arranged between the tough pinnacles of the Kipengere, Poroto, and the Livingstone Mountains at 2,600 meters above ocean level. This very much watered volcanic soil of the plateau underpins one of the best floral scenes of the world including some indigenous types of orchids, aloes, lilies, irises, proteas, goliath lobelias and daisies among numerous others .

Kitulo Plateau National Park is the only national park in Africa which is gazetted for its flower species. Kitulo is a botanist's fantasy with more than 350 types of vascular plants including 45 earthly orchids. Local people allude to "BustaniyaMungu" which signifies "The garden of God" in Swahili.

Kitulo does not have an extensive number of enormous animals but rather some uneven animals, for example, reedbucks, zebras and elands can be found wandering crosswise over fields of the park. In any case, the meager natural life in the park is made up by the hypnotizing plants, delightful birds and beautiful butterflies.

Kitulo is a paradise for bird lover with a rich birdlife including the uncommon Denham's bustard, which is only found in Kitulo in Tanzania. Threatened blue swallows, Kipengere, mountain swamp widow, and different bumpy bird species can be located in plenty in the park.
