Google Earth Voyager layer update: Go on safari

Back in June, timed to coincide with the 10th anniversary of Google Earth, Google introduced some new layers to Google Earth under the heading ‘Voyager’. Today, the layer has received an update and includes a new sub-layer named ‘Animal View’ that is described as ‘exotic creatures in their natural habitat’.

Many of the locations are high resolution aerial images captured as part of the National Geographic African Megaflyover. It also features Street View from various locations, including the recently added Kenyan imagery, Underwater Street View, Street View captured from a boat travelling along the Amazon, and many more locations around the world.
