Navigating Google Maps of Naiorbi

google maps kenya

If you’re used to the poor selection of maps for African cities, let me show you the future, today. Google Maps has an amazingly accurate and detailed map of Nairobi, Kenya, where you can do detail searches, for restaurants or computer stores for example, and you’ll get almost exact locations.

This is a great resource that apparently got its start when Google opened an office in Nairobi and realized the office couldn’t be found on Google Maps. From there, Google added its own map points and then opened up Map Maker to users who want to add their own data to more than 122 countries, including most of Africa.

Now you too can make a little difference – create or edit your own Map Maker data for places you know in African. Even big cities like Lagos, Nigeria could use the love.

As Google says, “Let’s map Africa!”
