With both her parents being freelance wildlife photographers, Tippi Degre has had one hell of a childhood. Her French parents, Alain Degre and Sylvie Robert, raised her in Namibia, where she grew up alongside wild animals like elephants, lions, and cheetahs.
Rather than playing with Barbies and dolls, Tippi was out kissing toads and riding on the backs of elephants. Have a look at these incredible photographs that document Tippi’s unique childhood, growing up with some of Africa’s most beautiful and dangerous animals.
