Tippi Degré is a girl who was born in Namibia, and has a special bond with animals. Her parents, Alain Degré and Sylvie Robert, worked as freelance wildlife photographers in Namibia. During her stay in Namibia, she befriended wild animals, including a 28-year old elephant Abu, a leopard nicknamed J&B, crocodiles, lion cubs, giraffes, giant bullfrogs and chameleons. She also befriended the Bushmen and the Himba tribespeople of the Kalahari, who taught her how to survive on roots and berries, and to speak their language.
