Africa, Google Street View can be seen in parts of Botswana, [1 ] South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho, and the Canary Islands of Spain.
Background [ edit ]
On September 1, 2009, Google announced that it started collecting images in South Africa for Google Maps Street View. Google is currently driving around South Africa in Toyota Prius, taking photographs of locations in the cities of
Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, Durban and East London. Google Trikes are also being used for the first time to map popular tourist destinations, such as the scenic Chapman's Peak Drive and Table Mountain in Cape Town, Soccer City in Johannesburg, and the new Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban. Images of South Africa were made available on Google Street View on June 8, 2010.
On December 8, 2010, more locations in South Africa were added. These were mostly rural and main roads, as well as a much larger coverage of the
Limpopo province. After the update, the borders of South Africa's neighboring countries could be reached.
