Wild Child

about Tippi Degré

Little Tippi Degré spent the first 10 years of her life growing up in the wilds of Africa with her parents Sylvie Robert and Alain Degré, both wildlife photographers, who captured dozens of beautiful moments shared by their daughter and the native African animals. Tippi just loved things like playing with her “brother” elephant Abu and took naps with Mufasa the lion cub. Born in 1990, in Namibia, she released a book in 2008 detailing her African adventures complete with stunning images taken by her parents, which have resurfaced online. Riding an elephant, hugging a giant toad and having her hand licked by a cheetah were all in a day’s work for the young intrepid explorer.

According to her mother, Tippi was a very lucky little girl: “It was just the three of us living in the wild with the animals and not too many humans. Tippi always said that everybody was gifted and this was her gift. She was in the mindset of these animals. She believed the animals were her size and her friends. She was using her imagination to live in these different conditions.”
