Tippi, aged 6 busy with two meerkats in Namibia, 1996. Incredible pictures of the real life Mowgli, a girl who spent the first ten years of her life growing up in the African bush, have been released for the first time. The magical images chronicle the life of Tippi Benjamine Okanti Degré, who was brought up with wild animals, just like Rudyard Kipling’s hero did in The Jungle Book. The images – in the relaunched book – “Tippi: My Book of Africa” – show the young girl making friends with an elephant, who she calls her brother, and a leopard, her best friend. Living with her French parents, wildlife photographers Sylvie Robert and Alain Degré, the three of them travelled extensively through Africa on a unique and incredible trip.
