No Comments

Have you ever thought what it would be to live in the jungle like Tarzan?

That's exactly what Dewet Du Toit, a 24-year-old South African, did. Dewet lives a little obsessed with the story of Tarzan and spends most of his time slipping between lianas and tree branches, riding elephants and eating fruits harvested from the trees, just as his favorite hero (Tarzan) did.

Dewet even traveled to England, where he had some work as a security guard and a delivery officer for a year, but his dream was very strong and he returned to South Africa, where he changed his uniform to that of a Tarzan. The young man became a fan of his childhood hero, when he lived in Namibia with his family, and his father bought him books and comic books by Tarzan.

His best friend is an elephant named Shaka and lives with monkeys, zebras and crocodiles, he spends more time with them than with humans. Although some people suspect him to be crazy, he believes he was born for it.
