Nancy recalled how she dreaded Frank returning from a shopping trip because he would always be
loaded down with piles of smelly old reference books or, worse still, big game trophies. Frank had
a life long passion for Africa and would have loved to visit Central or Southern Africa but never
got further than a brief trip to Xauen, in Tangiers.
Before Google, DVD, VHS or even colour TV, reference was very difficult to obtain. Its amazing to
think that Frank Bellamy created Fraser of Africa, the definitive African adventure strip primarily from
photographs taken on a trip to the zoo or captured from a wildlife documentary on TV.
