While most people hit the beach over Memorial Day weekend, Ciara had something a little different in mind.

"Riding on a Safari in South Africa!" she Tweeted Tuesday. "This is Surreal! This was something I always dreamed of!"

During her visit to the African country, the singer stopped by "the oldest reserve in the world besides Yellowstone Park," where she shared photos of zebras and a cheetah she met.

"Here's me trying to catch the cheetah," Ciara Tweeted. "He can run from 0 to 110 km in 3.3 seconds."

But it appears that wasn't fast enough for the big cat, with the singer Tweeting shortly after, "I finally caught her! That's a girl."
