Tippi Degre

These pictures have been circulating for a while on the Internet. So they are not new and maybe you’ve already seen them. Occasionally I stumble upon the photos again and this time I decided to post about them, because they are so very special.

With both her parents being freelance wildlife photographers, Tippi Degre has had a very unusual childhood.

Her French parents, Alain Degre and Sylvie Robert, raised her in Namibia, where she grew up alongside wild animals like elephants, lions, and cheetahs.

Rather than playing with Barbies and dolls, Tippi was out kissing toads and riding on the backs of elephants.

These incredible photographs document Tippi’s unique childhood, growing up with some of Africa’s most beautiful and dangerous animals.

If you’re interested in seeing more from Tippi’s childhood, she has published a book entitled
“Tippi: My Book of Africa”
