We kind of live for Shay Mitchell's travel snaps.

The Pretty Little Liars star has made it no secret she loves to travel the world, and her enviable Instagram feed full of photos from her vacays makes us want to hop on the plane tomorrow. For her latest excursion, Shay headed to South Africa and made our jaws drop (again) when she posted photos with some of the animals she spent time with there.

"Visited a wonderful organization dedicated to making a difference for endangered species. "Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre", thank you for having us. #mustvisitwheninSouthAfrica @hesc_endangeredspeciescentre," she captioned a photo on Instagram of herself kneeling next to a cheetah and petting his back.

Fans freaked out when they saw the snap, with one writing, "omgomgomg she's petting a cheetah," another writing, "Duuuude you're petting a cheetah!, and someone else commenting, "OMD hope u don't get hurt."

Shay has already proven she's fearless when it comes to trying just about anything on her travels, though, so after cuddling up with the cheetah at the center, she hugged the leg of a giant elephant and casually posed for a photo with a smile. "Another one for the books...Rescued elephants taking us through the safari! #kingofthejungle #SouthAfrica," she wrote alongside the Instagram photo.

And if hanging out with wild animals wasn't enough, Shay and one of her friends went skydiving not long after they arrived in South Africa too. "Going skydiving and taking a helicopter to the jump site because, why not?! It doesn't get better than this!!!! #SouthAfrica check it out on snapchat: officialshaym," she captioned a shot of herself in the helicopter and then posted another one that showed her and her friend skydiving.

Anyone else ready to book a flight? Total vacation goals.
