Many individuals and families enjoy taking "Add on" trips either before or after their mission trip.  We strongly suggest doing this.  We feel that if you are going to pay to travel to Africa, you might as well try to see all parts of it.  There are many options from going on a safari to seeing one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World (Vic Falls) that is only an hour plane ride away from where we serve (Lusaka).  Arise Africa works with highly accredited travel agents to provide multiple trip options you can take leaving from Zambia.  We work with the travel agents and plan everything for you.  Once you sign up and express interest in these trips we can send you much more information on them.

 

 

 

What is the youngest age child you have accepted to go on a mission trip?

Our youngest mission trip participant was 5 years old.  We suggest your children being ages 7 and older for them to get the full experience.  However we can accommodate anyone ages 5 and older.  

How do I get a visa for my trip?

There is no need to get a visa before your trip.  You will purchase a visa once you land in Zambia in the airport.  

Who makes the airline reservations?  Can I use airline points for my ticket to Africa and will the cost of my trip go down?

Typically we make your airline reservations for you. However if you want to do this, that is fine.  You can use airline points for your tickets.  Sometimes it is very difficult to get flights into Lusaka Zambia and you will have to make the ticket reservations yourself. We can adjust the cost of your trip accordingly, and only charge you for your time on the ground and planned programs.

What shots do I need to travel to Zambia?

We suggest you receive the shots that the CDC recommends.  Currently these shots are Hepatitis A and B, Malaria (pills), and Typhoid.  However we suggest you talking to your family doctor about your trip as well.  The easiest place to get your shots is a Passport Health travel clinic where there are locations throughout the United States.

If my child is not vaccinated can they travel to Zambia with Arise Africa?

Unfortunately Arise Africa cannot accept children to participate on our mission trips unless they are vaccinated. We feel the risk is too high and want to make sure your children are safe with us.   Diseases that we are vaccinated for are in Zambia.

What if I get sick or hurt while on a mission trip?

We work with multiple hospitals and clinics in Zambia.  We have relationships with European and American doctors in Zambia whom would treat you.  We also suggest every mission trip participant purchasing air evacuation insurance.  

How do I reserve my spot for the trip?

Once we get your $250 deposit we will reserve a spot for you on the trip you desire to participate on.  You can give your deposit in two ways. You can write us a check and send it to our office. (mailing address located at the bottom of this page)  Make sure to write your name in the memo line and what trip you are signing up for.  You can also donate $250 online through a credit card.  Once again please make sure to write your name in the mission trip participants name section. 

Where do I stay on the trip?

You would stay on our complex property with all of the other individuals on the trip.  The complex has full time security and is in a safe location.  It is very comfortable and has everything you would need.

Will I be able to communicate with family members in America while I am in Zambia?

Absolutely!  You will have access to internet.  You can also use imessage on your phones and purchase an international calling plan if you wish to make phone calls.   Most Americna cell phones work in Zambia when you arrive, the cost of each call depends on the carrier.  We suggest you research your cell phone plan before your trip so that you are not surprised at additional costs when you get home.

What will I eat while on the mission trip?

Great food!  Many people believe that Africa doesn't have food that we eat in America.  When you walk in a grocery store in Zambia it doesn't look much different than the stores in the United States.  You will be eating food that you are very used to and have eaten before. We serve burgers, lasagnia, mexican food, chicken plates and other food to mission trippers.   There are great restaurants in the city that we can take you to as well.  

Do the people I will be working with speak English?

Yes and no.  Our entire staff speaks fluent English and multiple tribal languages.  Most of the children we work with speak English.  Zambia was a British colony before they gained their independence from Great Britain in 1964. Therefore children still learn English in the schools.  Communicating with Zambians is not an issue, even though some Americans are concerned about this. Once they arrive they realize it is very easy to do so.
