Gear Patrol: South African Rangers and Cake Electric Motorcycles

From the verdant vineyards of Stellenbosch and the craggy cliffs along the Garden Route to the world-renowned safari sanctuary that is Kruger National Park, South Africa stands out as one of the most biodiverse places on the planet.

There, the buffalo and wildebeest stroll, the elephants and rhinos roam, and the leopards and lions lurk behind baobab trees, traversing parts of this planet most humans won’t ever tread — save for the rangers who patrol these parks for poachers. And thanks to a clever pilot program from Swedish electric bike maker Cake, a growing number of those rangers are doing so in a cool new way: on silent, solar-charged e-bikes.
