The Cycad of Mpanga are prehistoric plants that leaved at the time of the Dinosaurs. (several million years back). The plants have a habitat in Mpanga gorge in Kamwenge district western Uganda (the only pace in the word where you can find this specie) and are categorized as some of the most endangered species of the world. However by the time of my visit the government of Uganda has started construction of a dam that was to destroy up to 70% of their habitat.
