Botswana: Google started collecting photographs in Botswana for Street View

Google has confirmed that it has already started collecting images in Botswana for its popular Google Maps Street View feature in early March 2012.
Google's Chevrolet Captivas are driving around Botswana taking photographs of a variety of places, including cities like Gaborone and Francistown, as well as wildlife destinations such as the Chobe National Park, Moremi Game Reserve, Central Kalahari Game ReserveKgalagadi Transfrontier Park, and the Nxai salt pans.
Botswana will become the second African country to be on Street View, following South Africa, which is on Street View since just before the 2010 FIFA World Cup. It is expected that Google will launch Street View in Botswana in September/October 2012.
