Google has been capturing all kinds of weird and wonderful places for Street View in recent times, and today it has announced that Tanzania’s Gombe National Park is now on board too.

Made famous in the 1960s by Dr. Jane Goodall’s research into chimpanzees, the Gombe National Park is among the smaller such parks in Tanzania, at only around 20 square miles.

But thanks to a partnership with the Jane Goodall Institute and Tanzania National Parks, Google has taken its trusty Street View Trekker along to collect thousands of 360 degree images. You can even peer inside Goodall’s home.
