About Diana "Grandma" Dean

Diane Dean is known throughout East Africa as “Bititi,” pronounced “BEE-tee-tee,” a nickname given to her by villagers meaning “strong woman” in Swahili.

As the sun began to set on the golden age of safaris—when Africa was a limitless wilderness, Diana took off on her most exciting expedition. 

She started in Nairobi and wandered across Kenya. It was rainy season, which brought out some of Africa’s fiercest predators. 

Along the way, she witnessed a crocodile chasing a giant forest hog. 

Little did the crocodile know that Diana Dean was at the top of the food chain.

A talented javelin-thrower, Diana hurled a wooden spear at the pig, dropping it instantly. 

As the crocodile slithered to the wounded hog, Diana grabbed her loyal Winchester Model 70 and put a bullet straight through the crocodile’s head. 

Diana’s hunting party cheered—they had never seen anyone, let alone a woman, take down two different species in a matter of minutes.

That night Diana shared her bounty with the Kikuyu tribe. 

It was a glorious feast of tusk and tail, and a story told around fires in Africa for years to come.
