Jambo rafiki!

As some of you may know Miss World 2009 just took place at the Gallagher Convention Center in Johannesburg, and it is a young lady from Gibraltar, Kaiane Aldorino, who was crowned this year’s Miss World. As a result, I decided to do a beauty contest of my own: a fun “bum” beauty competition for the animals of the bush! :) ;)

Here are the nominees for Africa’s Backside of the Year

1. Mrs Rhino & Co

2. Mr and Miss Giraffe

3. Zebra Contestants

4. Elephant Nominees

5. Springbok Delight

6. Kudu “Especial”

7. Wildebeest Beauty

8. Impala Favs

9. Waterbucks: The “Lords” of the Rings :)

And the AWARD GOES TO…???

    I had such a laugh at this blogpost. Yes, everybody comes home with 'bum-shots'. But my favorite has always been the zebra's. (And I will not explaiin why!!)

    Cheers my friend, well done.

    It's close between the rhino and zebra, but I'll give the rhino the final count. They probably don't win very many beauty contests :)

    All cute and funny in their own way, but the "Best Bum" award has to go to the beautiful Waterbuck! No contest!

    Thanks for putting a smile on my face with this article :)

  • Lisa

    Best bum is by far the waterbuck!

  • Carryl Edwards

    They are all beautiful, but I’d have to say my favorite is the Zebra. Great photos!

    Thanks for all your comments so far everyone, I can see a clear favourite already…

    Can the odds be turned around? Keep on commenting, we will soon find out… ;)

    Must admit mine is a little different: I just LOVE the impala bum! :) Perhaps it's because of the M shape (my name is Michael…)?! And no, it has nothing to do with Mc Donalds!
