Kaley Cuoco had one wild birthday – pun intended.

The animal-loving actress, who turned 30 on Monday, took to Instagram on Saturday to tease her upcoming trip to a mysterious destination.

“2 planes, 12 best friends, one 30th bday, destination unknown = priceless,” she captioned a picture of herself en route and wearing a birthday hat.

On Sunday, Cuoco revealed she and her besties had jetted off to an animal sanctuary maintained by the Black Jaguar White Tiger foundation.

“Starting off my 30th year with a roar … Surrounded by my best friends and all the lions and tigers I can count,” Cuoco captioned a picture of herself petting a tiger.

Cuoco added: “#ithinkthismustbeheaven” and “#cuocosistersbirthdayextravaganza,” since the trip was also in celebration of her sister Briana Cuoco, who turned 27 on Sunday.

Cuoco also shared a picture of herself with Black Jaguar White Tiger founder Eduardo Serio.

“Epic Eddie #badassdude #ouralbumcover @blackjaguarwhitetiger #dirty30 #savingtheworldonerescuecatatatime,” she wrote.

Next, the Big Bang Theory actress uploaded a slew of pictures of herself enjoying time with the animals and her girlfriends.

Cuoco also uploaded a group shot of all the ladies, saying the crew embodies “serious squad goals.”

“12 bffs on the trip of a lifetime! #cuocosistersbirthdayextravaganza @blackjaguarwhitetiger #zombies,” she wrote.

Cuoco has been keeping busy with friends, as well as her horses and dogs, in the wake of her September split from husband Ryan Sweeting.

Cuoco and Sweeting announced their breakup exclusively to PEOPLE on Sept. 25 after 21 months of marriage, and Cuoco filed for divorce from the tennis player four days later.

Cuoco seems to be moving on from the relationship in any way she can: Most recently, the actress took to Instagram to document her newest tattoo – which she specifically got to cover up ink commemorating her wedding date to Sweeting.

“Thank you @nero_sct @studiocitytattoo for helping me right my wrongs,” Cuoco wrote. “Note to self- do not mark your body with any future wedding dates. #under30mistakes #donttakeyourselftooseriouslykids.”

“The deep, meaningful, larger than life meaning behind this beautiful piece of ink, is .. It covered the last one,” she added.
