Thank you for any help in advance:

Website in question : http://travel.melkbostravelandvisa.co.za/

You will see there is a contact form. I hope I am missing something simple but I am unable to get the contact form working, that is no email is being sent. I WOULD BE MOST GRATEFUL for any help.

Here are the code snippets in question :

html :

<!-- contact -->
<div class="contact" id="contact">
<div class="container">
<h3 class="heading">Contact</h3>
<form action="" method="post" name="sentMessage" id="contactForm">
<div class="col-lg-4 col-md-4 col-sm-4" data-aos="zoom-in">
<div class="control-group form-group">
<div class="controls">

The action attribute is blank. Put the URL to the PHP file there and see if it works then.
