South African celebrities took a little time off this festive season, but made sure to keep us in the loop as they posted their beach breakaways and private jet trips on their Instagram accounts. Here are some of our celeb Instagram highlights from the holidays.

On The Beach

Nothing says South African summer quite like time spent under the sun, on the sand and in the sea.
