The love birds jetted off to the mountainous East African country after tying the knot in New York City last Sunday. Rossum’s Instagram account is filled with photos of the animals the couple has seen during their trip.

“Hanging out with these guys today,” he wrote.

Tips for Planning a Wedding on a Budget
Rossum and Esmail got engaged in August 2015 after two years of dating.
The actress told PeopleStyle in 2015 that her engagement to the Mr. Robot creator has been focused on sentimental details — like the story behind her classic round-cut diamond engagement ring.
“I like that it’s old and I like to imagine who wore it before me and the life that they had,” she said. “I don’t know the story behind it, but it’s from 1920 in Paris, so I like that I’ve inherited someone’s story, and I hope that it’s a good one.”
