Hilary Duff is enjoying an exotic honeymoon with her new husband Matthew Koma — and some African elephants, lions, and rhinos.

The Younger star and the musician, who wed last month in a private ceremony at home, headed to Kruger National Park in South Africa for a safari getaway. “Honeymooning with my honey. Already seen the big 5 and had so many naps,” the 32-year-old actress posted on Instagram Saturday, referring to the lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and Cape buffalo. “Doesn’t get better than this....”

“I love when you talk about my big 5,” Koma replied, jokingly.

Duff chronicled the couple’s trip with photos of the animals they spotted along the way, including a massive herd of elephants. “This is just our back porch, and there are just like 30 elephants we just counted in the back of our yard. Just crossing the river,” Duff said in an Instagram story. “This is the Sabie River.”

“This is all before 7 a.m. Found a pride of lions resting, thinking about their next moves,” Duff wrote.

“Guys this gorgeous leopard was two feet from me,” Duff said in a video capturing the animal slip away from behind her vehicle.

“We saw four out of the ‘Big Five’ yesterday,” said Duff in another video, decked out in safari gear.

The couple did manage to get in some quiet time when they weren’t out spotting the majestic creatures, choosing to “max relax” back at their lodging, where Koma chilled in a bathrobe.

After the December nuptials, Duff shared a photo of the couple embracing by a Jeep Wagoneer emblazoned with “Just Married” lettering, and tin cans and flowers attached to the bumper.

Duff also posted some personal photos, including one of her carrying the couple’s toddler daughter Banks.

Another featured Koma walking down the aisle alongside Duff’s 7-year-old son Luca, from her previous marriage to retired hockey player Mike Comrie. “Best guys I know,” Duff captioned the photo.

Duff and Koma have dated since January of 2017, and welcomed daughter Banks in 2018.
