This article should guide you and give you a clear understanding of why you should apply for an internship in Cape Town with XChange South Africa.
Why Cape Town?
Cape Town, more commonly know as the ‘Mother City,’ is voted “one of the best cities in the world”. Cape Town is a beautiful city at the foot of Africa. There are plenty of forests, mountain ranges and pristine coastlines stretching for kilometres with every adventure activity you can think of. Something the makes Cape Town unique is the vast variety of different mixing cultures, religions and ethnicities. With this uncommon combination of nature, culture and history, there is literally something for everyone in Cape Town.
