God’s Garden: Kitulo Plateau National Park
Referred to by locals as Bustani Ya Mungu—literally, "The Garden of God," this national park is a botanist’s delight, literally bursting with a colorful biological pot of orchids, lobelias, and lilies that thrive in the fertile volcanic soil. This Serengeti of flowers is also a bird and butterfly watcher’s paradise, with many endemic species fluttering amid the open and fertile grasslands.

The plateau is accessible by 4x4 from Mbeya, for those who wish to follow one of the hiking trails or attempt a hill climb in the shadow of the looming peaks of the Kipengere, Poroto, and Livingstone mountains. Best time to visit is between October and April when the flowers are in full bloom.
