Tech Internships


At Rhino Africa, we develop ground-breaking technology that connects luxury African travel companies with international clientele. Our goal is simple: to seamlessly connect the luxury African travel market with those that wish to experience it, from anywhere in the world. This drive for innovation is spearheaded by our Digital Operations department. We are at the core of where travel and technology meet, forging a path of ground-breaking discovery involving the development of a wide array of technologies. From robust systems used daily by our consultants to customer-facing websites and interactive documentation - we strive to bridge the gap between our customers and our consultants.

To make sure that our innovations are in sync with the best and brightest young minds in the industry, we have created the unique Rhino Africa tech internship programs. These programs are designed to inject fresh perspective, new ideas, and youthful energy into our ever-evolving workplace, while simultaneously helping interns develop their own skills and an understanding of how technological innovation works in the travel industry. Preference will always be given to South African Employment Equity candidates.
