The view from our office window

Cape Town is officially one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Framed between oceans and mountains, it’s surrounded by incredible natural beauty, with Table Mountain, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, an absolute highlight. Cape Town is also a place of huge diversity, lively cultures, and a vibrant nightlife. Living here is dynamic and interesting, and weekends will give you a huge variety of exciting activities.

You can, for instance, venture to the top of Table Mountain, go paragliding, take to the ocean by kayak, hang out on some of the many beaches, sip wine at stunning vineyards, head out on safari, enjoy some Africa’s finest restaurants and even take to the skies on a helicopter flight over the city. For those more interested in exploring South Africa’s culture, how about visiting the historic Robben Island, or taking a free walking tour through the city to learn about Apartheid?

Participants on this marketing internship live in a shared volunteer and intern house in Muizenberg, just 3 minutes away from one of the most popular beaches in Cape Town’s South Peninsula. Aside from being one of the best surfing beaches around (ready to get suited up?), it’s an area filled with vibey bars, cafes, and amazing restaurants. Our team of international and local staff members live and work with you, so expect to see and do more than most tourists could ever dream of.

“I have had the most amazing time on this marketing internship with African Impact; gaining new skills, making lifelong friends and forever being inspired. The whole office is warm and welcoming, making you feel like part of the team from day one. I particularly loved visiting the amazing Cape Town projects in order to learn more about what we are marketing and witness first hand what African Impact is all about. I would highly recommend this internship to anyone interested in Marketing and Social Media, it has provided me with a whole new skill set to carry with me through future career choices. I couldn’t have wished for a better experience and can’t thank African Impact enough!

“This 3 month marketing internship has been the best experience of my life from the moment I arrived in Cape Town. My expectations were exceeded in every aspect, from the knowledge I gained to the friends I made and the adventures we went on. Days spent in the office were never boring thanks to my 2 amazing bosses always keeping us interested and motivated. I have always wanted to pursue a career in marketing and this internship has not only solidified my future career but it has also shown me I want to market something I am truly passionate about like volunteer work with a responsible/reliable company.”
