Smith saw some more animals, including lions and a hippo, at the nearby Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area, and had fun poking fun at some other tourists.
Smith also stopped by Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Africa. I’m shocked he didn’t hike up it.

As somebody who also has the travel bug, I applaud Smith. He constantly trains hard, and has earned the right to have life experiences before returning to suit up for football.
