B2B Manager from CAKE, Sinje Gottwald, is crossing the African Continent, from Europe to South Africa on a Kalk AP. Two batteries, a satellite telephone and an adventure spirit beyond limits. THE PACK asked her very kindly if we could publish her (electric) travel diary, and she said yes!

Almost there! I crossed into South Africa – the last border crossing of this adventure and it only took 10 minutes. It’s beautiful here, very dry and hot and the only challenge at this point is load shedding.
I MADE IT!!!!! I finally arrived in Cape Town today after crossing the African continent from north to south on my electric motorcycle – solo and unassisted as the first person ever. After all the challenges and obstacles along the way I feel so relieved and happy to be here, proud to have made it and a bit melancholic this adventure is now ending.
Not many people thought that this mission would be possible and I am extremely grateful to the few that believed in me from the very beginning. Thank you so much Stefan Ytterborn and the whole CAKE team for supporting me in this adventure! I am grateful for the trust you have placed in me. Thank you also to Forcite, Enduristan and Nomadix!
A very big thank you to everyone who followed along and sent kind messages/left comments, they really helped! Thank you!
