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.

“Channeling my spirit animal or maybe it’s just the outfit. Whatever it was, passers-by at the @oocapetown wondered what the $%&! I was doing! LOL #RWARRR,” she captioned the image.

Only a week before her visit to Cape Town, Mitchell was busy shooting with Modeliste Magazine in Rwanda.

“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!” she captioned the post.

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.
