Vic Sotto and Pauleen Luna are celebrating their first wedding anniversary in South Africa.

A week ago, Vic Sotto and Pauleen left Manila for a safari adventure in South Africa.

In Kenya, the couple had the chance to see wild animals up close, including this giraffe.

But Pauleen was enchanted by zebra.

On Instagram, she described it as "one of the most beautiful for me!"

The Eat Bulaga! co-host added, "In a pile full of browns, it is amazing to see black and white! It's uniquely stunning! They're not scared of people, too."

As early as 6 a.m., the couple were already on their way to Maasai Mara National Reserve, a large game reserve in Narok County, Kenya.

A sun-shiny morning greeted them.

Now these were the animals they saw, starting with Baboons.
