All The National Parks and Nature Reserves You Can Explore Thanks To Google Street View

an African Safari on Your Phone

You can now explore the routes of Cape Point, Table Mountain, see a 360-view of the Atlantic Ocean, Chapman’s Peak and False Bay from your phone. This is because Google recently launched street view imagery of all of South Africa’s national parks, nature reserves and a host of new trails.

There are over 170 trails, all of South Africa’s 19 National Parks are featured, including 17 nature reserves and other tourists attractions. This opens you to an entire world of vistas, paths, caves, rivers and, of course, wildlife. This real-life perspective is now available to everyone around the world.

How all of this came about is equally interesting. More than 200 South Africans were involved in this 12-month project, including trekkers, rangers, and civilians. The trekker camera is a “22kg custom-made backpack fitted with 15 cameras pointing in all directions...the camera takes a 360-degree photo every two-seconds”.
