Google has Google Earth and it can be used on the OSX platform.

Apple maps are (as far as I know) only on the iOS platform.

But, is some remote African areas the image coverage provided by Apple Maps is far superior to the same Google earth image.

Is there a way that the Apple Maps can be used in a similar fashion to Google Earth, on the OSX platform?

No, Apple Maps is iOS only. It's possible that Apple may release a copy of its mapping application for OS X some day but they have bigger issues to work through before then.
