Tippi Benjamine Okanti Degré, daughter of French wildlife photographers Alain Degré and Sylvie Robert, was born in Namibia. During her childhood she befriended many wild animals, including a 28-year old elephant called Abu and a leopard nicknamed J&B. She was embraced by the Bushmen and the Himba tribespeople of the Kalahari, who taught her how to survive on roots and berries, as well as how to speak their language.

Hello all, I’ve been around for a little over two years maybe? >_> I am horrible at keeping track of this kind of stuff. I’ve advertised this a few times now, but alas haven’t gotten much feedback or reblogs, but my friends keep telling me to toss it out there once in a while in case that one…
I don’t normally reblog these kinds of things but I’m doing it for a friend. Please take a read and potentially help out a friend =)
