Time to discover new places in Africa. Ghana, Senegal and Uganda now on Street View

Feb 10 2017 [Archived Version] □ Published at Maps under tags  maps

From the lovely scenic mountains of the south, to the beautiful beaches of the west, and the exotic parks of east, the regions of Africa contain some of the most breathtaking views in the world.

Starting today, you can take virtual tours of some of the most iconic landmarks and monuments in Ghana, Senegal and Uganda. That means Street View now covers 81 countries from across the world, and seven in Africa.

You can now virtually explore the UNESCO World Heritage-classified village of Nzulezo in Ghana, which is built over Lake Tadane, and consists of stilt-supported structures integrated seamlessly with the water-dominated natural landscape.

If you have an eye for cultural entertainment, you can now also take a virtual walk inside the National Theatre of Ghana, home to the three resident companies of the National Dance Company, the National Symphony Orchestra, and the National Theatre Players.

Explore amazing African art by taking a tour of Senegal’s imposing African Renaissance monument, a 49 meter tall bronze statue on top of one of the twin hills just outside Dakar, Senegal.

Other iconic landmarks now in Street View include the stunning Lake Retba, a unique lake known for its pink waters, and take a “drive” through major roads and towns including Dakar, Saint Louis, Thies and Touba.

We partnered with the Uganda Wildlife Authority to capture imagery of some of Uganda's most beautiful and iconic National Parks, home to an amazing variety of wildlife. With our Street View Trekker, either carried by our team or mounted on a vehicle, we travelled through seven parks, including the stunning Queen Elizabeth National Park, which is home to 10 primate species, including chimpanzees, and more than 600 species of birds.

We're excited that what began with a few South African cities in 2009, has now expanded to many other cities in seven countries across the continent. From Cape Town to Botswana, Kenya, Tanzania and now Ghana, Uganda and Senegal, we're glad that more people from around the world can get a glimpse of this beautiful continent. We think you'll be tempted to pack your own cameras to explore in person as well!
