Luxtripper launches adventure-led self-drive series in Africa and the Americas

From stargazing and forest bathing to craft beer and kayaking, these new bespoke itineraries are packed with experiences.

Luxtripper has launched a new series of self-drive holidays in Africa and the Americas, a response to the growing demand from our clients to explore via the open road.

The new series – including trips in Alaska, Canada, South Africa, Namibia and Argentina – is on sale now, offering itineraries packed with activities and special stays in some of the world’s remotest locations, from South Africa’s Garden Route to the lakes and mountains of Patagonia.

Perfectly paced, the new routes have been carefully planned to incorporate scenery, ease and flexibility. Highlight itineraries include:

Alaska Road Trip Adventure

This epic twelve-day itinerary navigates Alaska’s most mesmerising landscapes, from the forest-clad mountains and valleys of Denali National Park – home to Alaska’s ‘Big Five’: moose, caribou, Dall sheep, wolves, and grizzly bears - to the icy waters and glaciers of the Kenai Fjords.

Packed with immersive outdoor activities, the trip includes nature trails and panning for gold in Denali’s national park, craft beer tasting in Talkeetna, guided bike rides along the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, hiking on the Matanuska Glacier, kayaking or rafting around the icebergs of the Spencer Glacier and a wildlife boat cruise through the glacial fjords to spot humpback whales, orcas, sea lions or puffins.

Namibia 4x4 Self-drive Adventure

This 13-day Namibia trip offers five different safari locations and some of the best stargazing in the world, venturing from wildlife reserves to the red dunes and salt plains of the Namib desert, via the coastal city of Swakopmund, in a Volkswagen Amarok Double Cab 4x4.

Safari locations include the Okonjima Plains Camp in the Okonjima Nature Reserve, famed for its conservation efforts around rehabiliting big cats and endangered species such as pangolins, and a stay at the Ongava Private Game Reserve to spot black and white rhinos, elephants and zebras. A special stay at the Mowani Mountain Camp eco-lodge – with its dreamy outdoor baths and sunset views - also includes a visit to the ancient site of Twyfelfontein, home to a vast collection of rock art dating back an estimated 6,000 years. The trip culminates with two nights in the heart of NamibRand Nature Reserve, proclaimed to be Africa’s first International Dark Sky Reserve.

Lakes and Mountains of Patagonia: a Road Trip Adventure

Argentina’s famous Lake District is home to some of the most incredible drives and bike rides in the South American continent, which are included on this 9-night journey taking in alpine-style lodges, outdoor activities and breath-taking views. 

The road trip starts with an overnight in Bariloche on the shores of Nahuel Huapi Lake, before embarking on a scenic drive to the boutique Relais & Châteaux Las Balsas, a perfect spot for hiking in the Patagonian forest or kayaking on the lake. The next journey - between Villa La Angostura and San Martin de los Andes in Lanin National Park - is often referred to as the "Route of the Seven Lakes" and considered one of the most spectacular in Argentina. After two nights at the tranquil Loi Suites Chapelco Hotel, the route circles back to Bariloche, where guests can raft down the rapids of the Manso river or take a guided mountain bike ride through the forests and along the lake shore.
