Former Miss Universe Catriona Gray is on safari at the Manyeleti Game Reserve. 

The 27-year-old is making the most of her time in South Africa after arriving in the country earlier this month to be a backstage host at the 2021 Miss South Africa live show.

In Philippine beauty pageant history, Catriona is the first Filipina to represent the country in both the Miss World and Miss Universe competitions. She placed in the top 5 at Miss World in 2016 and took the Miss Universe title two years later.

This is not Catriona's first visit to South Africa; she was part of the Miss South Africa 2019 judging panel when the title went to Zozibini Tunzi, who then inherited Catriona's Miss Universe crown a few months later.

Now, the beauty queen has taken "some days off to get lost in the South African Bush".

The 23 000 hectare Manyeleti Private Game reserve is located between the Timbavati and Sabi Sands Game Reserves and borders the world-famous Kruger National Park.

"It was waaay colder than expected but graaabe what an experience! [sic]" Catriona captioned a series of photos taken while on a game drive.

In another "photo dump", the Filipino-Australian model shares photos of zebras, elephants, rhinos and lions.
