There has been a flurry of international superstars visiting our shores this festive season. Noah Centineo was spotted in a Checkers in Cape Town and now, Gossip Girl actor Ed Westwick has been spotted soaking up the sun in Umhlanga.

Ed is currently vacationing in Mzansi with his South African girlfriend model Tamara Francesconi. Tamara shared an image of the actor reading a local newspaper while enjoying some downtime at Durban’s popular Oyster Box hotel. The duo also enjoyed a romantic safari at the Rhino Sands Safari Camp where they enjoyed a picnic while looking out for the wildlife the safari camp has to offer.

The duo went public in October when they started making public appearances in and around Los Angeles and insiders share that the relationship is going strong. “Tamara’s head over heels with him and Ed is proud to tell everyone Tamara is his girlfriend,” a source says. “His friends and family all approve and think they’re a great match.”

Check out some pics from the couple’s South African getaway here:
