Hello, just hoping to touch base with anyone else heading of on the Zambezi volunteer experience departing 25 October. I know there is another family of four coming! We are currently working through all the logistics of what jabs we need (we are flying via Jo'burg so we are going to play safe and have the yellow fever course - oh goody!) and working out exactly what paperwork we need to produce to get the arrival visa. Do we need tons of stuff or does handing over the US$50 do the trick?
We were supposed to be flying direct with BA but they are cancelling the route as of two days after we fly out!!! So it was a hasty re-book with SAA which takes us via J'burg but only for a couple of hours and gets us to Lusaka within 30 mins of the group flight.
Any tips from Zambia old-hands would be very welcome - this is my first African trip and the first time we have taken our two daughters (14 and 12) somewhere a bit adventurous. Should be an eye opener for them!!
