Breath-Taking Photos of A Little Girl Who Grew up Among Animals in Africa

“I speak to them with my mind, or through my eyes, my heart or my soul, and I see that they understand and answer me.”

So says Tippi Degre, the daughter of two wildlife photographers who spent her childhood growing up amongst a number of magnificent animals in Namibia, Africa. Instead of cartoons and Barbies, Tippi got to connect with some of the most exotic animals on earth on a level that most of us will only ever experience with our cats and dogs, “including a 28-year old elephant Abu, a leopard nicknamed J&B, crocodiles, lion cubs, giraffes, a Northern Greater Galago, a Banded Mongoose, an Ostrich, meerkats, a baby zebra, a cheetah, a Caracal, a snake, an African Grey Parrot, giant bullfrogs and chameleons.” (Wikipedia)


The following photos are selections from her book, Tippi: My Book of Africa.
