Wondering If There’s a Real-Life Tarzan Swinging From Vines? [VIDEO]

Subscribe to TheFW on

It’s hard to imagine any real person embracing the ‘Tarzan‘ lifestyle, especially in this day and age. But after you feel the need to quit your job, as DeWut Du Toit from George, South Africa did, your options are either to live with the animals or with the Occupy Wall Street protesters.

Du Toit, a 24-year-old ex-security guard, put aside the vices of man and chose to pursue his dream of becoming the real-life incarnation of Tarzan.

I’m like Tarzan in so many ways. My best friend is an elephant called Shaka, and I spend more time with monkeys, zebras and crocodiles than I do with people… People might say I’m crazy, but I know this is what I was born to do. … I make a platform in a tree to keep away from prowling leopards and snakes on the ground.”
