AFRICA – Riding a five-ton elephant, whom she referred to as ‘my brother’, chilling with a cheetah or hugging a giant bullfrog as if it were a stuffed Teddy bear, was the childhood of a young French girl Tippi Degre. It seems more like a newer version of Mowgli in the ‘Jungle Book,’ rather than something real. She spent the first decade of her life on Earth on an incredible adventure in the African bush
She was born in Namibia to French wildlife photographer parents, and she grew up in Africa. Tippi spent her entire childhood playing with wild animals including lion cubs, a mongoose, a snake, a cheetah, baby zebra, giraffes and crocodiles. Tippi has since written her own book of memoirs about her unusual yet wonderful upbringing.
