A Street View trekker follows chimpanzees at Goombe National Park in Tanzania.

Google has taken its Street View from city roads to Australia's Great Barrier Reef, the Galapagos Islands, and now the forest with Dr. Jane Goodall.

In partnership with the Jane Goodall Institute and Gombe National Park,Street View lets youexplore the land where Goodall began her groundbreaking work withchimpanzees — and what has come to be the longest-running animal behavior research site in the world.

The collection includes images of Jane’s Peak, Kakombe Waterfall, Mkenke Waterfall, a chimpanzee feeding station, Livingston camp, Dr. Jane Goodall’s house and more, as well as Street View imagery of the chimpanzees.

The Institute plans to use Gombe Street View as one of the tools it uses to map the area in order to create an archive of information for future researchers. Find images and information at the Gombe Tanzania Street View collection.
