About Bobby Stodel

I was born in 1954, educated and married in South Africa and had my children and career in the UK. I am a Chartered Accountant and worked in administration management roles for a London City investment bank for 24 years. I took very early retirement in 2002.

I have been married to Tibby since 1976 and I have been privileged to have done almost all my travelling with her. We have three adult children. Our home is in London but we spend a month or two each year in our Cape Town home in their summer. We love travelling and have explored Europe for four months in a camper van, overlanded from London to Kathmandu, walked on a glacier in Canada, travelled from San Francisco to LA in a RV, seen a volcano erupt in Costa Rica, body surfed in Hawaii, snorkeled on the Great Barrier Reef, rode elephants in Thailand, drove down dunes in the Namib Desert, enjoyed the Taj Mahal under a full moon, hiked in the Himalayan foothills, sailed in a Nile felucca and experienced Antarctica. We have travelled long distances in trains in Europe, Egypt, Kenya, South Africa, India, Thailand, Australia and Canada. We love the African bush and spend time in game reserves every year. I spend two separate months each year travelling in Southern and Eastern Africa in my 4×4.

I am economically conservative, socially liberal and ecologically green. I can be contacted at robert@stodel.com.
