George Michael is on safari in Africa.
The 'Fast Love' singer - who was arrested in a UK public toilet earlier this month and cautioned for possessing crack cocaine and marijuana - is currently holidaying with partner Kenny Goss.
A source told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "Kenny booked the holiday weeks ago. George was particularly keen to see lion cubs. He was determined to see a variety of wildlife, including buffalo, elephants, lions, leopards and rhinos.
"They're doing the whole open jeep thing, going out with a tracker and a guide. In Africa no one hassles George - he's treated just like any other tourist."
While on the trek, George, 45, and Kenny are said to have slept out under the stars and had to make several early starts.
Former Wham! singer George is due back in the UK later this week and is expected to return after a visit to his holiday home in the South of France.
Following the incident, George publicly apologised to his fans and vowed to "sort himself out".
The troubled singer was previously arrested for engaging in a lewd act in a Los Angeles public toilet in 1998.
George is rumoured to be making an appearance at the 'Two X Two For Aids and Art 2008' art show, chaired by Dita Von Teese, in Texas, on October 25.
