Adventure is food for the soul, peace of mind and happiness to the heart. With google street view, you can now experience your destinations feel, before going for the trip.

According to Murito “82% of travellers are undecided on a destination and 74% of them start their research or inspiration online, it’s critical that we have Kenya online.  Millward Brown study found that with exposure to a video tourism ad, travellers are 6 times more likely to book,”.

What is Google Street View?

It’s a modern virtual tour technology that is, a 360-degree ground-level imagery layer found on Google Maps. Users are able to remotely explore landmarks, navigate a trip, explore the streets of cities and towns, and visit other places of interest from around the world.

That said, Kenya is lucky to have mapped about 21 National parks which include; the Maasai Mara game reserve; Amboseli national park; Nairobi National Park; Mount Kenya national park; Hell’s Gate national park; Samburu National park Reserve and Ol Pejeta Conservancy. Others are– Chyulu Hills National Park, Lake Nakuru National Park, Meru National Park, Mount Longonot national park, OlDonyo Sabuk national park , Sibiloi national park, Tsavo West national park and Tsavo East national park, Bisanadi National Reserve, Aberdares National Park, Saiwa Swamp National Park, Mount Elgon national park, Kakamega Forest National Reserve, Ruma National Park, and Shimba Hills National Reserve.

Google Kenya Country Director Charles Murito, said that this launch places emphasis on the impact that Google products and platforms have in helping Kenyans and empowering them to build & grow their businesses in order to create economic growth. He continued to say, “Tourism is a vital contributor to our GDP and he believes that we at Google can play an active part to help grow this sector through our products.  This can be in the form of showcasing the sites that Kenya has to offer, to providing targeted advertising in order to reach interested travellers.”

Najib balala, CS tourism and wildlife said that ,” Google Street View will bring Kenya to the world, by providing a global audience with tools to virtually explore Kenya’s cities, other urban centres, attractions and places of interest, therefore bring the world to Kenya, by growing a user’s interest to physically visit a place of interest that they have experienced virtually.”
