Now, they are taking a tour around Rwanda with Visit Rwanda. Madjozi said she was blown away by the country’s beauty.

She posted on Instagram: “Now that first #thebal is wrapped, we are taking a tour around Rwanda with @visitrwanda_now. So far I am BLOWN AWAY by the beauty!! Look at Ndambarare waterfall in Nyungwe national park. Is Rwanda Africa’s hidden gem? 😍” (sic)

She also enjoyed tea picking and tasting at One and Only House in Nyungwe.

According to the caption alongside an image of her wearing a colourful printed outfit and carrying a kitararu (baskets used to collect tea), Rwanda has some of the best black tea in the world.

Madjozi labelled the activity “a must do when visiting this gorgeous, easy-going East African country.” (sic)

She joked that the experience inspired her to become a tea connoisseur.

Maponyane visited King’s Palace Museum, in Nyanza District, Southern Province, about 88km from Kigali City.

He also spent a day at Nyungwe National Park where he hiked through the forest on the Igishigishigi Trail, leading to a canopy walkway. He said the “breathtaking views” stretched as far as Lake Kivu.

He also posed in front of the Ndambarare Waterfall.

The SA stars were staying at One&Only Nyungwe House, a 5-star property that boasts dramatic mountain landscapes and a working tea plantation.

Maponyane shared why people should visit:“I’m a BIG KID at heart and One & Only Nyungwe House has all the activities to keep anyone busy. Whether you’re wanting to feel like a modern-day warrior by trying your hand at archery🎯 and spearthrowing, to taking in the tranquil views of Nyungwe’s lush scenery. Whatever it is, Rwanda just seems have it.” (sic)
