Kitulo National Park
Is a protected area of alpine grassland and montane forest in the Southern Highlands of Njombe Region, Tanzania. The Park covers an area of 412.9 km2 (159.4 sq mi), lying partly in Mbeya Region and mostly in Njombe Region. The protected area includes the Kitulo Plateau and the adjoining Livingstone Forest.
Locals refer to the Kitulo Plateau as ‘Bustani ya Mungu’ (The Garden of God), while botanists have referred to it as the Serengeti of Flowers.
Protection of the Kitulo Plateau’s unique flora was first proposed by the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), in response to the growing international trade in orchid tubers and increased hunting and logging activities in the surrounding forests.
