Why do an internship in Africa?

One of the most photographed cities in Africa, Cape Town does not fail to impress when it comes to natural beauty. It is a nature lover’s paradise; from its pristine beaches to its mountainous backdrop, you’ll fall in love with South Africa while gaining professional experience at a leading internship.

Known most prominently for being Africa’s hub for business and finance, Cape Town is also a great city for fields like social work and government. South Africa is also leading the way in sustainability, renewable energy and technology.

When interns are not gaining hands-on experience in their career field at internships in South Africa, they are busy exploring all that Cape Town has to offer. While interning in the city, you can spend your weekends hiking up Table Mountain, or relaxing at Boulder Beach. Cape Town is filled with history, art, and a great gastronomical scene as well. No matter what your interests are, there’s something for everyone in Cape Town.
