the adventure of a lifetime


We at Go With Khaya strongly believe in creating lasting relationships with the people and projects we work with. This is how we source our volunteer projects, and how these relationships happen! Most programs we offer our volunteers are established by us, or we enter into a partnership to kickstart the concept of volunteering with these projects. In this way, we have intimate and thorough knowledge of our volunteer projects, and can send the right people to the right places.

Doing something different

Go With Khaya forms partnerships in various ways, some completely random – like most things in life, these random meetings are often the most fruitful! Many volunteer programs have been operating for some time, with different partners and agents that source volunteers and assist them with promoting their projects – but Go With Khaya takes pride in being quite unique.

We believe that building and maintaining lasting relationships with the organisations, volunteers and people we work with, and striving daily to understand and re-evaluate their needs via ongoing communication, allows us to forge a close bond for many years to come. Because together we can make a difference!

By forming partnerships with agencies worldwide, we create an environment where we work hand in hand – you promote our volunteer projects on a commission basis, and we get to focus on what we do best – running great quality, responsible volunteer projects. Go With Khaya has partnered with a variety of agents in Germany, USA, Canada, and Holland; and is looking for new partnerships in new countries to expand and grow our field of operations.


Do I need a visa?

When you stay in South Africa for a period of less than 3 months you do NOT have to apply for a visa (depending on the country of origin). You will come to South Africa on a temporary visitor’s permit for 3 months, which you will receive upon arrival at customs. You will have to show the customs authorities a letter from your volunteer project and clearly state that you are here for volunteering. We will make sure you have such a letter from your project.

When staying in Malawi, you will need a Temporary Employment permit – for travellers wishing to engage in an occupation including volunteering at an NGO. Speak to us for more info pertaining to your specific volunteer project.
