As we made our way from the dusty airstrip to Encounter Mara Camp our tour guide Collin was quick to point out the different kinds of antelope as they ran away. “Be prepared to photograph a lot of behinds” he said with a laugh. “By the time you’re done with us you can share full album of animal butts.” This of course was a joke but as I started to flip through and edit my photos I began to see a trend. Every 10th picture or so was an animal walking away.
With that, here is my cheeky take on my safari Big 5 Behinds. See what I did there? Oh, and by Big 5 Behinds I actually mean Big 10. One for each cheek?

My Big 5 Behinds post was made possible by The Safari Partners through a travel professional educational trip. Although my time at Encounter Mara was discounted, the experience, opinions, and thoughts are my own.
