"WOW!! You don't see a lioness on the side of the road everyday. Amazing!!" Lachey shared on Twitter Tuesday.
"It was a hellova flight, but well worth it," the singer said of the trek halfway across the globe. "Tomorrow, the adventure begins!"
It seems like the couple's extended family are excited to see more photos from their trip. Lachey's brother, Drew, suggested on Twitter that Minnillo bring a circular polarizer for her camera. Minnillo Tweeted that she was plenty prepared: "I got a new lens, a mono-pod, and the backpack to carry! @thedrewlachey would be so proud! Haha!"
