“Bum” beauty contest in the African bush

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…???

Please comment below to attribute a winner! 😉


  • Michael,

    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 🙂

    • Thanks Christine, glad I put a smile on your face! 😉 Hope this will be the case from now on lol…

  • Morgane

    Can i post one? 😉 My fav: waterbucks.

  • 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!


  • Zebra!

  • I think the Rhino has got the best shape
