While most Premier League footballers head off on holiday to the likes of Dubai, Las Vegas and Marbella, the striker has booked two breaks which will satisfy his love for nature.
The Man City ace is going to Kenya on a safari before spending some time in the Lake District.
A source told The Sun: "Mario loves animals and the great outdoors so it will be the perfect summer for him. Kenya will be slightly different to Liverpool's Knowsley Safari Park, where he became a regular this year.
"Staff at Manchester City recommended the Lake District to Mario and he is keen to see what all the fuss is about."
The striker is no stranger to camping holidays.
He spent a holiday sleeping under the stars in a Sicilian nature reserve during his Inter Milan days.
