If you want to see South Africa while “lion” around your own home (excuse the pun), then you can do so right now with Google Street View. You can get with the Mzansi Experience while you take on popular beauty spots found in South Africa. These include the Cape Point and Table Mountain spots. Street View offers a 360-degree look around Kruger National Park while letting you see lions, leopards, and elephants roaming around their natural habitats. You can also look at the eight Unesco World Heritage sites, which includes the Kruger National Park, which is one of Africa’s largest nature reserves.
Google Street View Lets You Experience the Vast and Beautiful Sites of South Africa
For many, witnessing elephants found in South Africa is one of their items in their very own bucket lists, and that wish may be closer to achieve with the assistance of Google Street View. While you won’t be able to see the elephants, or other wildlife, right in front of you, it does pose a better deal if you have no access to travel to South Africa at the moment. People all over the globe can now take advantage of the safari experience that the search engine giant has brought.
As per Google Blogs in a recent post, the service will allow users to get a first-hand glimpse of rhinos grazing the vast fields or even witness a herd of buffalos charging against the wind. For individuals who have keen eyes, you may even spot a leopard or two hiding underneath the tall grass.
Aside from visiting Kruger National Park, visitors can also take on the Mzansi Experience which includes taking on various sites such as the Table Mountain, Cape Point, Kirstenbosch Gardens, and the Jonkershoek Nature Reserve. Those who are looking to take a stroll with the use of Street View can do so while “walking” along Sunset Beach. You can even wander about Durban’s Golden Mile. South Africa is home to eight Unesco World Heritage Sites which you can visit with the assistance of Street View.
This concept pertaining to letting users visit South Africa with the aid of Google Street View has been launched with the partnership with SANParks. This is to aid researchers who may not be able to immediately visit the various sites in person. Furthermore, it is also to entice tourists to book trips to experience the actual wildlife instead of looking at 360-degree pictures.
