I've been a little MIA for the past week, traveling on 4 planes, a couple of buses, and by car; a total of 25 hours in transit to arrive in what I like to call

Safari Paradise

. I guess it's appropriate that they named the lodge we are staying at, "Singita" the Shangaan word for "place of miracles." 

Located in the Southeastern part of Zimbabwe, the Milalangwe Wildlife Reserve is by far one of the most stunning places I've ever visited. We've

 spent the past couple of days exploring the bush by car and even on foot! Putting ourselves in some unforgettable situations, including almost being charged by a white rhino. Probably one of the single most scary moments of my life.

Here's a caption of each photograph from top to bottom:
