If you’re looking to achieve career prosperity, an internship at Rhino Africa could be the kick-start you were hoping for! Rhino Africa has experienced tremendous growth since we started operating in 2004, and our product department has gathered some of the most talented travel experts any tour operator could hope to attain. At Rhino Africa, we recognize that our multiple awards would not have been possible without the assistance of our product team, that's why we're focused on expanding our dynamic product department even further and have created a Product Coordinator internship.
This internship can equip a career-driven individual to gain valuable experience within the travel industry. Career development in our product department is an experience previous interns can attest to and an experience we're positive our next Rhino will find just as rewarding.
