The Duke of Sussex, 37, made the solo trip without Meghan or his children Archie, three, or Lilibet, one, for a short visit to the country in his capacity as president of African Parks.
According to the Duke’s spokesperson, Harry was on the trip to welcome and co-host a group of US officials, conservationists and philanthropists earlier this week as they toured protected wildlife and nature areas.
The Duke’s trip was not formally announced before the journey, however in photos shared online of the visit, Harry can be seen wearing a grey polo shirt, sports cap and navy shorts.
