The Open Road Awaits . . .

Drives of a Lifetime with Red Savannah


Ahhh, the siren call of the open road . . . can you hear it? We can, and we like what we hear. Red Savannah, a company we admire for their out-of-the-box thinking, have reimagined the road trip and are offering these thrilling new itineraries. Time to hit the road!


Southern Coast Explorer, Australia, 12 nights

Drive the spectacular Great Ocean Road staying at fabulous boutique hotels along the way; explore southern regions of Victoria and South Australia with stunning coastal scenery, wineries, national parks, and the charming, cosmopolitan city of Melbourne. Visit Kangaroo Island for the opportunity to see koalas and, of course, kangaroos in their natural environment and discover the rugged mountain scenery and Aboriginal rock art sites in the Grampians National Park.


Classic New Zealand, 15 nights

The open roads of New Zealand are pure delight, with little traffic and vast panoramic landscapes. Explore the beautiful beaches and clear waters of the Coromandel Peninsula and geothermal marvels at Rotorua, continuing to South Island, where luxury lodges and fine vineyards complement whale watching and dramatic mountains and fjords. 


Oslo to the Fjordlands, Norway, 9 nights

Two days in cosmopolitan Oslo pave the way for a week exploring Norway’s fjords from land, sea, and air. Enjoy walks and water pursuits by day—and local cuisine and cozy firesides by night. Motoring enthusiasts will delight at the sight of open roads winding endlessly into the distance, framed by breath-taking views.


Culinary Road Trip in Europe, 12 nights

Gourmands, driving enthusiasts, and curious travelers will delight in this 13-day road trip, working its way from San Sebastián—the understated beach-side home to 16 Michelin-starred restaurants—through the lesser-known Basque borderlands and into France for scenic forests, coastal climes, and fine Bordeaux wines.


Road Trip Through California, 15 nights

Explore America's stunning west coast from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Spend time walking in Yosemite National Park, roam the boutiques and beaches of Monterey and Carmel, and ride 17 Mile Drive—one of the world's most beautiful drives. End with a drive along famous Highway 1 to palm-fringed Santa Barbara and star-studded Los Angeles.

Road trips not your thing? Red Savannah recently announced a new itinerary that lets you explore Antarctica by private jet on a 10-day trip that starts and ends in Cape Town, South Africa, with incredible adventures along the way—including a visit to an Emperor Penguin colony, exploring ice tunnels, and spending a night in the South Pole. Nice.
