1.  Check out the website and choose a project!

The first step you’ve already successfully done, which is finding your way to our website. Once here you can find all information about Khaya and our projects. Take a good look at all of them, read through the information, check out the pictures and videos then decide which project you want to do! This is most likely the most challenging step, so take your time with this. Look at everything that seems interesting to you, compare them, look at them again, show them to your parents. Basically just do whatever you need to do to make sure that you choose the right project.

If you really can’t choose, you can always send us some information about yourself (who you are, what you study, what you enjoy doing, how long you want to stay for) and then we can send you some options that we think are perfect for you!

2.  Fill in the application form

Once you’ve made a choice, you’re ready to start the booking process. The first thing you have to do is fill in the application form. This will go straight to our booking agent, who will respond to you within 24 hours by sending you an e-mail with some more information and the info guide of your project of choice. Do not hesitate to send her any questions if you have some, she will be more than happy to answer them!

3.  Complete the application and confirmation of booking

Once you’re sure about the project, our booking agent will ask you to complete the application and to send her your CV and a picture of yourself. She will in the meantime contact the project to check availability and provisionally book it for you. She will then send you another e-mail to confirm your stay. Just send her an e-mail telling her that you confirm and you’re good. (this must be done within a week).

4.  Pay the deposit

The last step to your booking is paying the deposit. This must happen within 10 days after the confirmation. Only when you have paid the deposit will your stay be confirmed for us!

And that’s it! Quick, easy, simple and fast. Hope it helps all of you and we’ll be seeing you in Africa soon!
