You’ll have opportunities to explore the sights, learn your way around the local city and immerse yourself in the local culture. This is also an excellent jumping point if you are moving on to another Zambia project after! Not only will this essential introduction help you to understand Zambia’s rich culture and history, but it will also help you to understand it’s way of life and introduce you to other participants and hopefully new life long friends!

We will take you to important historical locations, as well as the more useful day-to-day orientations such as supermarkets, police stations, and the local doctor. You will be based in the amazing small town of Monze, located in the southern province of Zambia. From our base in Monze we will leap out and explore the surrounding area including shrines, picnics, national parks and even a visit to the hot springs!

This week is designed to be fun, activity-packed and most of all informative. You will be given culture and customs introductions, learn the do’s and dont’s of Zambia and get opportunities to meet the local people, learn a little of the language and try your hand at whipping up some Zambian cuisine in a cooking lesson.
