Travel Industry Internships


Rhino Africa was founded on a passion for the people, wildlife and landscapes of Africa. For over a decade, we have been tailor-making luxury safari experiences for our guests from all over the globe. Rhino Africa was an early adopter of the online travel boom and we’ve continued to embrace innovation as a key ethos. We pride ourselves on our digital skills and place ourselves at the hot spot where travel and tech meet. Each year, working with 2000 partners and suppliers, we service over 15000 clients and fill 100000 bed nights, aiming to be the authority on African travel. It is our vision to share our passion, experience, and knowledge with the world.

To share this passion with you, we have created the unique Rhino Africa travel industry internship programs. These programs have been designed to inject fresh perspectives, new ideas, and youthful energy into our ever-evolving workplace, while simultaneously helping our interns to develop their own skills and understanding of our dynamic industry.
