Important COVID Information: Our summer plans are dependent on the COVID situations in Zambia and the United States. It is possible that flights could change slightly or the projects we are working on be adjusted as need. We ask all of our mission trippers to be flexible and ready to serve in a multitude of ways as we consider the safety of our children, staff, and teams!
All mission trippers, 18 years old or older, must be fully vaccinated to travel to Zambia with us. This is because the US government requires a negative PCR covid test taken within 24 hours upon departure (to re-enter America) if you are not vaccinated. We cannot get a test that quickly in the area we are in.
If Arise Africa chooses to cancel a trip due to COVID, all donations and trip payments are 100% refundable, except for the initial $300 deposit.
Tentative Schedule: You will leave the United States via Emirates on Thursday, June 30th and arrive in Dubai on Friday, July 1st. You will have a 21 hour layover in Dubai with a complementary hotel room and the ability to explore the city (click here for our top recommendations on how to spend a layover in Dubai)! You will depart from Dubai the morning of Saturday, July 2nd and arrive in the city of Lusaka on Saturday afternoon. You will have the next 7 days to participate in programs in Zambia! On the way home, you will have the same travel itinerary, with you leaving Zambia the evening of Saturday, July 9th and landing back in the United States the morning of Monday, July 11th!
