Five Great Places to Enjoy Christmas in the Sun

Christmas is a magical time at home for many, but lots of us would willingly board a plane and exchange winter attire for beachwear. Our destination specialists have shortlisted five destinations across the globe, for those in hot pursuit of a villa or tailor-made holiday in the sun this coming Christmas.

Oman for Families

The beaches of the Mediterranean are a sure fire hit for families with young children. However, where to go for a little more adventure, where fine weather is guaranteed? Ed Granville takes his family on an Oman holiday.

Alternative Christmas Holidays

Whether you have a perfect family gathering in mind or an escape from seasonal obligations, the Christmas holiday period offers a wealth of opportunity from bucket list adventures to a relaxing dose of winter sunshine. How about New Year with the Maharajah of Jodhpur or waking up in a private Omani desert camp or a beautiful log cabin in the Rockies? Our destination specialists have a myriad suggestions for a Christmas and New Year  to remember, not a turkey in sight.

Inspiration for your Easter Holidays

When it comes to holiday planning, it pays to think ahead. Many popular destinations are booking up fast for April and the Easter holidays in particular, so our travel experts have compiled some recommendations to ensure you don’t miss out – whether you are seeking action and adventure, peace and solitude, or a traditional family holiday in the sun. Here are just a few suggestions to inspire your plans this Easter:

A New Year to Remember…

As the dawn of a New Year beckons, we take a look at some of the best places in the world to see in the 1st of January. For those preferring to escape the festivities altogether, head for splendid isolation away from the crowds. For party animals and culture vultures, then take your pick from some buzzing, cosmopolitan cities. The destination specialists at Red Savannah have selected their recommendations for a truly memorable New Year’s Eve.

Rivers in the Desert – Oman

When Red Savannah’s expert on Oman holidays, Ed Granville, recently visited the country, he scratched the surface of the desert to uncover ancient rivers, lost cities and discovered that the desert, in fact, experiences a monsoon season.

Oman Holidays – New Walking and Cycling Opportunities

Oman is a terrific destination for those seeking a little adventure and activity during their holiday. A new walking and biking operation in Oman’s northern Al Hajjar Mountains has now opened up offering some tremendous opportunities to explore this wadi-riven and dramatically mountainous part of the Sultanate.

Half Term Family Holidays

With children back at school it might be time to start thinking about your next adventure together as a family. The October half term can be a lovely time to travel – the summer heat gives way to gentler climes and shoulder season rates make travel all the more affordable.

Whether you are seeking some active adventure to let off steam or somewhere to relax after a hectic first term, see below for a few suggestions or call our experienced team of travel specialists on 01242 787800 for a tailor-made itinerary to suit your family’s holiday wishes.

Spring Break Holidays Around the World

As winter very slowly recedes and fades into spring, it’s time to dust off the cobwebs and consider a break to restore body and soul. Perhaps a short hop to Europe to enjoy the time honoured culture and traditions for which the continent is so famous, or perhaps some family adventures in Oman or South Africa. Explore the emerging hot spots in south-east Asia or simply unwind and enjoy the harbour views from your pool in Antigua. Red Savannah CEO, George Morgan-Grenville, suggests destinations for a spring break this year.

If camping to you conjures up images of muddy wellies and sheltering under leaky canvas in a field somewhere in the Brecon Beacons, think again. Luxury camping is on the rise, taking guests to some of the most stunning landscapes, leaving barely a footprint. Creature comforts abound: high thread count linens on four poster beds, fluffy pillows and towels, hot showers, fine dining and even libraries and cocktail bars, all with the backdrop of somewhere incredibly beautiful.
