The girl in these pictures is Tippi Benjamine Okanti Degré. She was born in 1990 and spent her childhood in Namibia. Her childhood isn’t typical though, she didn’t play barbies or hopscotch, Tippi grew up alongside wild animals like cheetahs and lions. Her childhood was stunning:
Tippi grew up among the wildlife, it was normal to her.
The animals that surrounded her were her best friends.
It’s like a real life Mowgli from the Jungle Book.
Not only did she love the animals, but they loved her as well.
Her childhood is one of a kind.
A true blessing.
And she loved every minute of it.
What an amazing journey Tippi had growing up. I am envious at everything she got to experience. You can read more about it in her book here. She now believes she has a special talent of talking to animals and a love for them that not a lot of people can understand.
