South Africans are known to be extremely welcoming hosts (well, most of the time!) and Fillipino model and current Miss Universe Catriona Gray has felt the warmth of our hospitality recently. Last week, the model and singer had the pleasure of adjudicating the 2019 Miss South Africa pageant where she was treated as an esteemed guest by her fellow judges, Bonang (who hosted the ceremony), and every South African in attendance.
Judging a national pageant isn’t easy however, and after putting in a great deal of work towards this year’s ceremony the 25-year-old took some much needed time off when she went on her very first safari excursion.

Her wish was granted when a pride strolled past her before her game ride came to an end:
Scenes from today 😍 So I was praying to see lions up close and heard in my spirit just to wait. So I was sitting there, 15mins passed by and I was just thinking about how creative God is to create all these animals and scenery. And suddenly we turn a bend and there is a family of lions walking right in front of us. 😍😍😍 thank you God for an amazing experience in South Africa 🙏 @legendgolfandsafariresort @official_misssaCatriona experienced a number of memorable moments during her stay in South Africa, which including bearing witness to Zozibini Tunzi’s victory at the Miss South Africa pageant
