The fun-loving couple decided to make the most of their trip by shooting a video of themselves dancing, which they planned to put to music upon their return, but African wildlife police weren't impressed with their moves.
Shepard explains, "We wanted to see the wildebeest migrate so we had driven five hours in the car, we finally got to them on the Serengeti, we got out of the car (and) we started doing a dance for this music video.
"We weren't paying attention and then the Serengeti police showed up and they fined us $50 for dancing at the Serengeti."
However, they got to keep the footage and now plan to use Africa by Toto as the soundtrack to their safari video.
Bell and Shepard treated pal Jimmy Kimmel to a clip when they appeared on his late night show last week (19May12) - the footage showed the adventurous couple running after a group of giraffes.
