You can now go on safari in Kenya’s Samburu National Reserve from the comfort of your home thanks to newly uploaded Google Street View images.
If you want the safari experience without the expense or travel, you can now embark on one via Google’s Street View.
It is possible to explore Kenya’s Samburu National Reserve. This is as a result of Google’s work with the Save the Elephants charity, which has a research camp in the park.
Google’s Street View cameras were driven along a track that runs through the 65-square-mile park. There are lions, zebras, elephants, leopards, and even a group of Samburu warriors to be seen.
It’s hoped that people will see the work done by the Save the Elephants charity, which may in turn encourage people to get involved.
Head of Save the Elephants’ field operations, David Daballen, wrote a post saying, “A visit to Samburu is a chance not only to see these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat, but also discover a uniquely beautiful landscape where people’s lives are interwoven with the landscape’s wildlife.”
If you can’t visit, Google’s Street View is the next best thing.
