Explore Tanzania and find chimpanzees with Google Street View

Explore Tanzania and find chimpanzees with Google Street View
Google / Google Street View

Google Street View has been adding new attractions for Internet users to explore. Things like the Taj Mahal, Mount Everest, the Florida Keys, the Grand Canyon - you name it and Google probably has it ready for you to explore right from your computer. Want to hike California state parks? Done. Do you feel like seeing the Great Pyramids of Giza? No problem.

Google has really outdone itself with the latest addition to Street View. It has just made Gombe National Park available and open to anyone, without having to head to Africa. You might know this park by a different theme however: it's the chimpanzee reserve founded by Jane Goodall more than 50 years ago.

With Google Street View, you'll be able to take a walk in the jungle and see chimps and their families - like Glitter and her daughter Gossamer close up, see beautiful beaches and waterfalls, and even tour Goodall's house and research center.

And on top of the Street Views, you can take a guided tour, complete with fun facts about the animals, learn about the research going on, and explore the land with the special Gombe Street View Trek. Click here to check it out. 

Just be careful. You might learn something!
