A stunning game reserve with small exclusive lodges that are all friendly and relaxed with personal attention at all times, is looking for an intern to join them for 3 to 5 months anytime between September 2017 to April 2018. We are a small, friendly team so you would be expected to learn each department before spending the majority of your placement as a general assistant to our Camp Managers/Camp Coordinators who run the F & B, Guest Liaison & Hosting, and Housekeeping departments in each lodge, with limited catering assistance. There is no Front Office work included in this experience. If you are young and energetic, over 18 years of age, and if you enjoy making people happy, and are keen to experience working in a tented lodge which is a more informal environment than working in a hotel, and happy to learn and want to work in a beautiful remote environment - then this placement is for you!

When on duty you are given accommodation plus meals, uniform, laundry (live in) at the lodge/camp during the three weeks on duty cycle.
This is an unpaid internship, however, the interns do receive gratuities from guests as all staff do, and it does include all meals on duty, accommodation on duty and off duty, meal allowance for the one week off in each cycle, uniform to wear on duty, laundry and wifi at the staff house.
