Aston Villa Captain John McGinn Enjoys Hols In Zimbabwe With Wag

These images show how Aston Villa star John McGinn has jetted into Zimbabwe for some holidays with his wag Sara Stokes after an invite from his teammate Marvelous Nakamba.

The top Premier League player said it was an “amazing experience” seeing lions and elephants up close.

The Lions captain, 28, dazzled fans with images of himself and his fiancee on safari after he was invited by his Zimbabwean teammate Nakamba, 29.

The Glaswegian, who plays as a midfielder for the Premier League club Aston Villa, and for the Scotland national team, is reportedly enjoying the getaway with his fiancee Sara.

He has now arrived at the Victoria Falls International Airport on a sunny Tuesday afternoon just after 4pm, on 27th June.

He was reportedly greeted by delighted locals and fans who lined up to take pictures with the Scottish football star.

McGinn also shared a number of images of his fiancee and himself taking part in a safari, saying: “Wasn’t on the bucket list but should’ve been. Unreal.”

A video shows them in a vehicle enjoying the site of a herd of elephants crossing a dirt track before some hyenas are spotted.

The images then show a leopard or cheetah, followed by a giraffe and a rhinoceros.

McGinn told local media: “Marvelous Nakamba told me every day that I should come to Zimbabwe because it’s a beautiful country and then I told him I was going on a safari they recommended South Africa and Zimbabwe so I am looking forward to Victoria Falls.

“I had an experience with the animals, I am not used to seeing lions and elephants. It was an amazing experience in South Africa and now I am not scared anymore and hoping to see some more animals in Zimbabwe as Marvelous told me.”

He added: “The hospitality has been amazing. Marvelous told me about how much Zimbabwean people love the EPL so I never really believed, but it’s nice to be here. This is a nice place, and I am sure in the next couple of years, I will come back to see one of the Natural Wonders.”
