Olunga is enjoying a luxurious South African holiday while recovering from injury, sharing stylish snapshots with fans.

Harambee Stars captain Michael Olunga has taken a well-deserved break from the pitch and embarked on a luxurious Christmas holiday in the breathtaking landscapes of South Africa.

The Al Duhail striker, who has been sidelined due to a hamstring injury, decided to swap his football boots for flip-flops and soak in the beauty of Cape Town.

Olunga's absence from the field came as a blow to fans after he scored during the final Asian Champions League clash against Persepolis early in December, only to limp off due to the unfortunate injury.

Al Duhail confirmed the hamstring injury in his right leg, emphasizing the need for rest and rehabilitation to expedite his recovery.

The football star, who recently received the prestigious Head of State Commendation (HSC) from President William Ruto, made his way to South Africa just in time for Christmas.

Michael Olunga delighted his followers on social media by sharing numerous captivating photos showcasing his stylish and relaxed holiday escapade in Cape Town.

One of the snapshots captures Olunga exuding casual elegance in a white T-shirt, brown trousers, and sleek Nike sneakers.

 In another enchanting photo, Olunga stands against the backdrop of the awe-inspiring Cape of Hope, a rocky headland situated on the Atlantic coast of the Cape Peninsula in South Africa.

It is worth noting that there's a common misconception about the Cape of Good Hope being the southernmost point of Africa, owing to the historical belief that it marked the division between the Atlantic and Indian Oceans.

Kenyan fans poured out their love and admiration for the footballer on social media. One fan even humorously suggested, "Bro, should you consider moving to the United States, at least you can check out some beaches, or is your visa free?"

Olunga's popularity and charm clearly extend beyond the football pitch.

Known for his extravagant lifestyle, Olunga is reported to earn an impressive monthly salary in Qatar.

This affluence allows him to enjoy a lavish lifestyle complete with luxurious homes, high-end cars, and extravagant vacations.

In the recent past, Olunga has vacationed in the Maldives, France, and Spain.

His journey to football stardom began in Kenya, where he showcased his talent with clubs such as Gor Mahia, Thika United, and Tusker FC in the FKF Premier League.

It was during his time at the Liberty Sports Academy, as a high school student at Upper Hill School, that he honed his skills and laid the foundation for his remarkable career.

Before gracing Qatar Stars League with his presence, Olunga made stops at Japan's Kashiwa Reysol, Spain's LaLiga side Girona, China's Guizhou Zhicheng, and Sweden's Djurgårdens IF in the top division league.
