This group program allows for the diversity of experiencing South Africa from a different angle. As a group you will have some of the best community engagement but also wildlife viewing in a malaria free environment. Khaya’s experience working exclusively with a variety of local non-profit organizations, its own high quality beach accommodation for groups and flexibility allows for a truly unique experience with a true impact.
This program is flexible and can be customized to fit with the needs of the group in terms of activities and availability of dates. Check out the pdf download below for additional optional activities.
