In order to support the efforts of the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust in Kenya, a yacht company has created an electric safari car which is effective in lowering emissions, tackling climate change and greenhouse gases.
Taking inspiration from a recent range of electric vessels created by Sunreef Yachts, a Poland-based company that specialises in creating custom catamarans, a team of engineers decided to build a special electric safari car with solar panels on the roof and donated it to the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust, which operates programmes aimed at protecting wilderness and wildlife in Kenya.
According to the company, the range of the electric car has been calculated for specific safari routes in Kenya and it will be able to cover them on a single charge. The solar panels on the roof have been added as support and mainly to provide power for some of the systems onboard. It can be said that the new electric safari vehicle has the ability to change the safari experiences in Kenya thanks to its state-of-the-art technology and eco-friendliness. Cruising through the wilderness, listening for the sounds of animals and birds has never been easier and more exhilarating.
With the goal of protecting the unique natural heritage and wildlife in Kenya and the ecosystem and biodiversity of East Africa while also helping the local Maasai communities, the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust brings a fantastic vision to life. One of the most powerful ways in which everyone can change their impact on the environment is to reduce fossil fuels. By converting ordinary fuel-powered engines to electrically charged engines, the electric car eliminates the harmful emissions from the atmosphere in environmentally sensitive areas in Kenya. Furthermore, the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust promotes responsible tourism and education through cooperation with sustainable camps and lodges, for instance, Campi Ya Kanzi and Chyulu Wilderness Camp.
