What years did Carroll live in Africa?   

Where exactly? 

Any photos of his property?  Stories of his exploits?  Gotta be some tall tales from that era.  (I never even thought to ask him about it.)

Tony, thanks for the Motor Trend link.  Funny, but I wrote part of that article.  I knew the year 1974 had been suggested, but does anyone know exactly the total time period he lived there?
