What's Left of Me
How I Lost a Fight with a Rogue Hippo and Won my Life
With no money, no job and no arm, Paul Templer faced a few obstacles in his transition from Zimbabwe to Beverly Hills, Michigan. As his story reveals, Paul pursued the American dream with the same determination he used to fight the rogue hippo that almost took his life. And he was victorious in both battles.
Paul’s story begins in war-torn Rhodesia settling into becoming Zimbabwe. Amidst the turmoil, Paul Templer developed an aversion to settling at all. He traveled from England, to Israel, to India, refusing to get “a proper job.” Eventually, Paul discovered a love for safaris, guiding tourists along the Zambezi River.
On one particular “bad day at the office,” a rogue hippo tragically altered Paul’s life, leaving him near-death, missing an arm and despondent.
With support from family and friends, Paul transitioned from a hospital room to the world stage as word spread about his story as the African safari guide who survived a hippo attack.
