Welcome to Kitulo National Park
The park reaches its prime during the rainy season from December until April, when it explodes in a profusion of colour, with orchids (over 40 species have been identified so far), irises, aloes, geraniums and many more flowers carpeting its grassy expanses. Orchids are at their peak in February. Look out too for zebra, which have been reintroduced here, and the rare and recently discovered kipunji monkey, with its long coat and 'honk-bark' call.
Rising up from the plateau is Mt Mtorwi (2961m), which is 1m higher than Mt Rungwe and southern Tanzania’s highest peak.
