Google Street View has launched its maps of Kenya's Samburu National Park, which allows internet users to take a virtual safari tour. The route follows one of the roads through the 165 sq km (65 sq mile) central Kenyan reserve and does not let the user go off-road.
The initiative, launched together with the charity Save the Elephants, wants to promote wildlife conservation, by aiming to tell the stories of the elephant families in the park in real time.
The Kenya Tourist Board says it is the country's first national park to be accessible in such a virtual way. "We hope that by bringing Street View to Samburu, we will inspire people around the world to gain a deeper appreciation for elephants."
