They walk, they ride bicycle, they camp, they sleep in the bush ...

They know the bush and how to act. Their senses are also much more attuned to the bush than other people's.

Obviously there is risk, but this is their world and they are part of it.

Agree Imberbe. We also saw rangers on foot on poaching patrol during our recent visit. I expect that being on foot they can access areas not suitable for vehicles / bikes, and are able to look for signs of poachers. Saw the rangers on dirt roads and in river beds.

These guys know what they are doing.
