At Red Savannah we pursue a deeper kind of luxury that's not just about great hotels in cosmopolitan cities or the traditional African safaris. We open up this continent to both the inquisitive and willing, from Botswana safaris exploring the floodlands of the Okavango Delta by mokoro to flying safaris over Namibia's dramatic dunes, from the lost parks of Zimbabwe to classic Kenya safaris and the continent's newest lodges, all bespoke for you. Thus the journey begins, travelling on the dhows of Mozambique, tracking wild dog in Laikipia and wondering at the Selous in Tanzania and Devil's Pool in Zambia. Wildlife, wild places and the greatest possible guides - our travel experts know where they are sequestered and the secrets they can share.
