With its headquarters situated in the heart of bustling Cape Town, this company is more than just the leading safari company in Africa (four years running!). With a portfolio of properties across the continent and as the winners of a distinguished African Excellence Award for our 2020 Vision, this is a company that has the spirit of a startup, but with the marketing expertise of an acclaimed ad agency. Our drive to be the best in the business is motivated by our vision to make a positive impact through our various initiatives.
From our humble beginnings, with under 10 employees in 2004, they have grown into a quirky mixture of over 200 entrepreneurs, tech boffins, ex-Google professionals and the most promising graduates from all across the globe - our “Rhino Crash” - as we like to call them. This melting pot of talent, where interaction and collaboration is encouraged, allows our interns to flourish and reach their full potential.
To showcase our beautiful continent to the world, while simultaneously creating an environment focused on life-long learning, we have created these unique Digital Marketing internships. These internships are designed to grant bright young marketing enthusiasts, who share our passion for travel and all things Africa, the opportunity to learn from the leaders in the field and upskill themselves. Training and development is one of our core pillars. We are constantly learning and developing to keep up with the dynamic world of marketing, so all interns attend regular workshops and certification programs.
We have the perfect internship for you, offering opportunities to English or German or French speakers in specialized roles in Digital Marketing and SEO. Our digital marketers and SEO specialists take a scientific yet creative approach to performance marketing.
They participate in various workshops and certification programmes including:
Intro to Online Marketing; Social Media in International Markets; SEO Basics and International SEO; Excel for Beginners; Google Analytics; Photoshop Essentials Training; Branding Fundamentals; How Online Analytics Work; Writing for the Web; Introduction to Competitive Analysis; Introduction to Google Search Console; Introduction to Moz; HTML and CSS Basics
