This Little Girl Was Raised In The African Bush, And Is A Modern-Day Tarzan.

Posted on Mar 10 2014 - 10:41pm by Lisa

Tippi Benjamine Okanti Degré was raised in the African bush by her parents, wildlife photographers, Sylvie Robert and Alain Degré. She was born in Namibia and the family also traveled through countries such as Botswana,  Zimbabwe and South Africa.  Growing up in the bush, Tippi was always surrounded by wildlife and was able to form strong bonds with the animals because most of them had been orphaned and were raised by farmers. Her parents always made sure Tippi was safe.
“Her everyday life was making sure monkeys did not steal her bottle,” said Sylvie.

“It was like having the biggest playground. We lived in a tent, completely in the wild, but she always woke up with the sun shining and her parents around her. She was very lucky.”
