John has been our solution finder for the best experiences that you can find in Kilimanjaro and Zanzibar.Starting with our hike to the famous Uhuru peak, he provided us with the best team that accompanied us. Hands up for Oscar, the lead guide who made it possible for us to reach the summit!We also went in the Safari in the Tarangire and Ngorongoro National Parks where we saw a variety of wild african animals in their natural habitat.Of course, our vacation could not miss Zanzibar and the trips in the surrounding areas.John and his company Xpats International took care of all related things, from transportation, meals and accomodations. We couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you so much!

I had a truly unforgettable experience doing the 8 day Lemosho route with Xpats. We were looked after from the minute we landed at the airport, and made to feel very welcome by John and the guides. Our whole itinerary was very well organised and laid out so we always knew what we were doing and John went above and beyond making sure all our needs were met……Overall a brilliant trip, made even more memorable and stress-free by knowing we had John looking out for us at each step. I would definitely recommend Xpats to anyone wanting to climb Kili!

I had an amazing experience climbing Mt Kilimanjaro in June 2022 with Xpats International on the Lemosho 8 day route. We were looked after phenomenally by the crew on the trek and also from John at Xpats on the ground. John spent a lot of time communicating with us prior to the trip to make sure we had the correct kit/information we needed for a successful summit. The experience was enhanced by the friendliness of the crew, amazing porter services and excellent food and water supplies to keep us going. There was never a dull moment as we were singing and chanting and dancing with our guides and porters along the trek. Our medical stats were monitored closely and we all felt very looked after by the guides. It was a challenge but I definitely could not have done it without the support of the crew and John.

We have just finished the 8 day Lemosho route with XPATS. The guides and porters were amazing, spirits were high every single day! We were fed extremely well the whole trip, and it was delicious. Every morning we were greeting with tea & coffee, when we arrived at camp popcorn, and a meal would be waiting for us!The guides were very knowledgable and safety aware. We learnt lots about plants, Swahili, culture, and overall had an amazing time with them! They kept us singing, chanting and dancing the whole way to the top! We all summited successfully also!John was super helpful throughout the trip, and before it – answering any questions we had no matter the time of day! He helped us get the best prices for things, arranged a safari for us in Arusha National Park and showed us the best of Arusha food/culture! Would definitely recommend using XPATS!

First of all I would like to say thank you to John and his team for this great trip. First we successfully climbed up the uhuru peak via the lemosho route and then we decided to go a three day safari trip (tarangire and manyara national park and nogorongo crater). What I appreciated the most was that John was available all the time before and during our vacation. He gave us helpful tips as well as supporting us with administrative things like visa, other activities, health care… that went far beyond his actual job.Also as I had no connection to reach out to my family during the hike, John tried to reach our guides as often as possible to give my sister at home a live sign from us . I felt safe with him at all times and that is for me one of the most important things. It was definitely a service that went far beyond what was expected…

In the preparation John did an excellent job advising me on which route to take, what to bring and how to prepare physically and mentally. I really appreciated the communication, because he always answered any questions I had right away. He was also the one advising me to go for Machame instead of Marangu route. After summiting I am very happy that I went for Machame. I honestly don‘t know whether I would have summitted on Marangu as the acclimatization landscapes are a lot worse. Additionally, John did an amazing job making sure that I am comfortable and taken care of. He picked me up at and brought me to the airport, organized hotel rooms for before and after the climb and even helped me buy a Tanzanian SIM card for my stay afterwards.

Really enjoyed the trip! John has been great with helping me prepare for climbing Kilimanjaro. He organised it perfectly, helped with last minute questions and I was able to reach the top relatively easily! Guides and crew were good. Really great to reset a bit and enjoy the amazing nature.

Xpats International was professional and delivered as promised. Going to a different continent was intimidating at first, but Xpats made the experience comfortable and enjoyable. I would definitely use them again.
