Kalk AP


The anti-poaching Kalk

Kalk AP (Anti-Poaching) is based on the original Kalk platform, developed and modified between rangers and the CAKE product team, for anti-poaching purposes.

To continue to promote and build the fleet of motorbikes and solar power stations in Africa, the initial offer is a charity combo. A limited-edition of 50 bikes will be offered. All of them are uniquely marked with a number based on when they are being bought.

The combo meaning that each purchase is a price-reduced bundle of two CAKE Kalk APs and a solar power station along with solar panels from Goal Zero. The buyer gets one bike, the other twin bike, together with the solar power station and solar panels is handed over to the Southern African Wildlife College.
