Rosemary Sloggett - Managing Director and owner of The Independent Traveller
If you dare to ask her how long she has been in the travel industry, you are likely to be faced with her stock answer –“ too long”…..but then you might get her to admit that it is in excess of 35 years!
Once voted the UK`s Travel Agent of the Year, Rosemary is the consummate travel professional, and she has been blessed to have travelled extensively throughout her long career, but it is perhaps her passion for travel and in particular for specialised, individually designed holidays with meticulous attention to detail, that sets her and The Independent Traveller apart.
Rosemary has led small group tours to places as diverse as Nepal, Morocco, South Africa and India – and in addition, The Independent Traveller has arranged group travel to the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
Her travelling highlights include micro lighting over the Annapurna Mountains in Nepal, riding an elephant through the bush in Zimbabwe, being mesmerised by the beauty of the Taj Mahal and sleeping under the African skies in the Kalahari with what seemed like millions of stars gracing the sky.
As well as being a very discerning traveller, always seeking “the road less travelled”, Rosemary has a passion for wildlife, photography and has teamed up with Eclipse and Astronomy experts to provide a range of holidays that link the earth and the sky in magnificent union.
