They are the arteries of life on earth and the most beautiful of our planet’s highways - great rivers that dissect our continents, charting the evolution of great civilisations, mapping the present and and shaping our future. To take a river journey along the Amazon in South America, the ‘Mighty’ Mekong through Southeast Asia or the Nile through Egypt is to sail through history, great cities, lost villages and a kaleidoscope of incredible flora and fauna.
At Red Savannah we offer small ship river expeditions which allow access into some of the lesser visited tributaries as well as the great water courses themselves. We uncover life as it has been lived for centuries on the banks of Burma’s Irrawaddy and Chindwin rivers; we follow the Mekong along routes once fought over by Cold War opponents, the Nile past the temples of Kom Ombo and Luxor, and the Amazon River through some of the world’s most fascinating ecosystems, all on river boats chosen for their beautiful cabins, authentic dining and the very best guides.
Explore Cairo and Aswan before sailing through history on board your Nile River Cruiser, past the temples of Philae and Edfu, to Luxor where the magnificent temples of pharaohs await in the Valley of the Kings.
This classic journey through Peru begins in the capital of Lima, before continuing to the ancient capital of Cusco, the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. A 3-day cruise of the Amazon River completes your adventure.
The idea for Red Savannah was always based on a clear market need. A small team of the most experienced travel designers, supported by the latest technology and delivered with the lightest touch. In short, a travel company redefined for the 21st century.
