Red Savannah Announces 2021 Destinations and Travel Trends


Red Savannah, a luxury travel company specializing in tailor-made trips around the world, has come up with a list of destinations and key travel tips that keep privacy, space, and meaningful travel top of mind:

  • Glorious Isolation 
    • Private Gulet Charter: Visitors can enjoy a floating home for a week complete with a chef, captain, and full staff, all they have to do is decide the activity of the day.
  • Greenland: Greenland’s fjords are home to luxurious tipis, solar-powered huts and contemporary lodges – wonderful sanctuaries for watching calving glaciers, exploring Norse ruins, or even salmon fishing with bare hands. 
  • Private Island Resorts 
    • The Maldives: Soneva Fushi launches Flying Sauces in 2021 on the Baa Atoll. The new culinary adventure features a kitchen 45-feet high in the tree canopy. The Nautilus has embarked on a range of initiatives including a new big game fishing boat, new Sea Bobs, a clean-up of the lagoon and reef, and a new multi-purpose sports court. The resort has invested $100,000 in a Covid-19 testing machine which guests will be allowed to use on a complimentary basis prior to departure. 
  • Private Houses & Villas
    • Arijiju, Kenya: Kenya lends itself perfectly to private safari house rental, a leader in the field being Arijiju, located in Laikipia in Northern Kenya. It has been designed more as gracious country home, complete with tennis court, games room and cinema. While there’s plenty of wildlife to be seen, guests can also enjoy long, rambling bush walks, mountain biking or horse riding.
    • Leobo Private Reserve: Leobo Private Reserve is set on 20,000 acres in South Africa’s malaria free Waterberg region. Quirkily designed, with its own Observatory (space suits are optional), unique library in a two-story tower and various one-of-a-kind artifacts, the property comes fully staffed and with the invitation to indulge in a of myriad activities from the sublime to the adrenaline-fueled. Choose from quad-biking, riding, walking, fishing, game viewing, wild swimming and kayaking, amongst other possibilities. 


  • Road Trips
  • Family U.S. Road Trip by RV:  A 13-day journey that explores the lakes forests and beaches of the Eastern United States of America, with overnights striking the right balance between hotels and RV camp grounds.
  • Essence of Norway: An 11-day adventure that combines the freedom of the open road with some of Europe’s most beautiful landscapes, lots of opportunity for exploring the great outdoors, complemented by charming boutique hotels and excellent local cuisine along the way.
  • Philanthropy 
    • Philanthropic travel is more important than ever. Longer trips to places like Sumba Island in Indonesia where the Nihi Sumba resort gives back in the form of the Sumba Foundation, for example, or safaris where staying at a beautiful lodge, such as Singita Kwitonda, funds anti-poaching or wildlife conservation will increasingly resonate with the more aware, informed traveler for whom gold taps and thread count really don’t matter.
  • Work-ations
    • Due to the flexibility of being able to work remotely, why not spend a few weeks in a private villa in Provence, Tuscany or the Caribbean?
  • Make it Meaningful – Bucket List Adventures 
    • The trend is now towards longer duration trips that cover less distance, taking the slow road and savoring the experience of getting under the skin of each special place.
  • Beat the Queue
    • With summer 2020 effectively cancelled, swathes of people have moved their 2020 bookings to summer 2021. Travelers are encouraged to book trips as soon as possible before everything is sold out.
