About

Those who choose South Africa as a destination for an international internship have something truly unique in store. The country’s culture is set apart from other African nations by its extreme European and Asian influences, and booming economy. As the economic epicenter of Africa, the nation of South Africa offers endless professional opportunities in fields such as Business and Finance. Parallel to this developing economy is an art scene all its own, providing ample professional experiences in fields such as film production and wine.  Weekend opportunities provide the perfect opportunity to visit the nation’s breathtaking beaches, shelf-like mountains, and of course Kruger National Park – said to be the best site for a true African safari.

Interns can expect to work side by side with local colleagues, receive direction from a manager or staff member, and behave just as one would in a real job. On weekends or after work hours, interns engage in a host of activities depending on each participant’s tastes. Interns share meals with new friends or host family members, take in cultural events, explore the city, or even take day or weekend trips outside of the area. World Endeavors provides a list of possible activities in the area and the World Endeavors local coordinator can also function as an ever present guide and ambassador to the area.
