Since wrapping up filming of Freeform’s hit series Pretty Little Liars, Shay Mitchell has spent time traveling the world, documenting her adventures in numerous Instagram posts.
While in Cape Town recently, the 29-year-old Canadian actress and model posed in a black Adidas tracksuit that featured the label’s signature striped pattern interspersed with artistic animals. Leaving her mane untamed and accessorizing with unique Quay Australia sunnies, the actress appeared to be having a great time in South Africa.

Only a week before her visit to Cape Town, Mitchell was busy shooting with Modeliste Magazine in Rwanda.
It's been amazing to be off the grid, you know when you're off but ask for wifi everywhere you go?! lol – Finally back on line and excited to share a little sneak peak of my shoot with @modelistemagazine featuring @songadesigns (jewellery created by the local women) – I got to spend the last couple days with an incredible group of people in one of the most amazing settings and one of my favorite countries, Rwanda. Can't wait for you all to see it! Special thanks to these amazing people for sharing this experience with me! @modelistemagazine @amynmccabe (editor in chief) @josephchase (hair stylist) @brunolimadesign (stylist) @harvymoon (videographer) @doveshore (photographer) @songadesigns (jewellery) #nopeaking ????????????

In many of the images, Mitchell is featured wearing bracelets and handbags from Songa Designs International, a fine handcrafted accessories collection by artisans in Rwanda.
The actress also spent time exploring and hanging out with young Rwandan children. In one clip, Mitchell can be seen playing with the kids and showing them how to use a Snapchat filter.
Everyone loves a good Snapchat filter ???? @shaym playing with the kids of @songadesigns on our shoot in beautiful Rwanda. Styled by @brunolimadesign Makeup by @shaym and Hair by @josephchase #shaymitchell #prettylittleliars #modeliste
