Why Are We Called Cycads Safaris?

Cycads African Safaris derives its name from Cycads which are an ancient group of seed plants with a crown of large compound leaves and a stout trunk. They are a minor component of the flora in tropical and subtropical regions today. Cycads are among the threatened plant species in the world. Following the report from Nature Uganda, cycads are listed among the threatened and endemic plants. Among the ycads so far described from Uganda are:
E. equatorialis (from the south near Jinja)
E. whitelockii (from Western Uganda)
E. septentrionalis
E. macrostrobilus (both of these species occur in the north close to the border with Sudan)
