In the post, Witherspoon said she and Kaling were ready to hike mountains, snuggle some sheep and meet awesome Kiwis.

Earlier in the day Kaling, who is known for her role in The Mindy Project, posted a photo of picturesque Wanaka on her Facebook page.

She posted last week that she "could not be more excited" to be going to New Zealand for work and playing a character who did not work in an American office for a change.

The trio were spotted walking off a private jet which landed in Queenstown last night.
