What your life would be like if you lived in the Jungle Book


By: Travis - 16 October 2013 - 0 Comments

You ever snuggled with a cheetah? This girl did, and it seems it didn’t stop there.

The childhood of Tippi Degre, the daughter of French wildlife photographers, Sylvie Robert and Alain Degre, was pretty unique. Her childhood involved chilling with elephants, cheetahs, lions, snakes and all sorts of cool African culture.

The little girl you see below is now 23 years old and little is known about her life today.
It’s said that after spending time back in France, she didn’t adjust well to the city life of Paris (go figure).

She then went back to Africa and is residing somewhere in Namibia.

A real life Jungle Book!

For the first time, these photos have been published in the book, “Tippi: My Book of Africa”. (amazon link)
