As an intern, you will have the choice to do some traveling and sight seeing DURING the dates you are in Zambia. 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 Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, that is only an hour plane ride away from where we serve in 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.
