Internships at Safari Lodges, Camps and Hotels

Internships in kind
We arrange internships in various safari camps, safari lodges and hotels in the areas of tourist interest in Tanzania. These include national parks such as the Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Kilimanjaro, and also cities like Moshi and Arusha, from where safaris begin, as well as the largest city in Tanzania, Dar-es-Salaam. You send us your CV in English, and your desired time period, and we will share with you the camp/lodge/hotel where an internship is possible within a few days. You can specify which department/activity within the camp/lodge/hotel you are interested in. This is no obligation for you until you decide on a hotel that we suggest to you. We will share the exact conditions regarding accommodation, food, etc., before you make your decision. Many interns also combine an internship at a hotel on the mainland of Tanzania with one in Zanzibar.

Safari-Lodges, Hotels and Safari-Camps in Tanzania

tznhotel10One safari camp which opened in July, 2008 is located in the Ikoma Open Area, North-West of the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, not far from the border to Kenya and a 4 hour drive to Lake Victoria. The camp is situated on a rocky cliff protruding high over the surrounding savannah. Twice a year, the world-famous migration of wildebeest takes place in the area, when two million wildebeest and zebras - followed by hungry predators, migrate between the Maasai Mara and the Serengeti (August - October). However, throughout the year, the area is full of wildlife. The camp is used as a base for game drives to the Serengeti, and for hiking safaris and night game drives in the Grumeti Area. The camp has 10 spacious tents with toilet and showers and 7 bandas (traditional round huts of the Massai), as well as a thatched-roof reception and restaurant, where the lunch boxes for safari tourists are prepared. It is of standard category. As an intern, you can participate in all areas of the camp, such as preparation of the camp for new groups, welcoming guests and customer support, purchase and planning of food and supplies, preparation and implementation of activities such as bush lunches and excursions, and assisting with improvements and further development of the camp and activities in the area. Interns are accommodated in the camp and should stay at least for a month. The village of Mugumu is at a distance of around 2 km (1.5 miles).

tznhotel11Outside of Karatu, the last town before entering into the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, the same operator runs a 4-star hotel with 30 rooms, restaurant, bar, pool and night entertainment. The hotel is located on a hill with a view deep into the southern Ngorongoro forest and the surrounding coffee plantations. It serves as a base for safari trips to Ngorongoro crater and Lake Eyasi, and as a stopover for tourists heading towards the Serengeti which is located more in the west. Here, you can also be employed in services such as front office, planning and implementation of events, activities and cuisine. As the hotel has no accommodation for employees, would you stay in a guest house in the village of Karatu, where the other hotel employees live, about 5 minutes walking distance to the hotel. This will incur a monthly rent.

tnzhotel13This camp is situated in the Ngorongoro National Park, about 140 km from Arusha, overlooking the Lake Eyasi. There are 20 comfortable and fully furnished tents, all with shower and toilet for 2 guests and a large restaurant tent. Tourists usually reach the camp in the late afternoon and spend the evening and night there before continuing the next morning on their safari. At the camp, the lunch boxes are prepared for the subsequent day's safari. The accommodation for trainees is in the same camp in spacious tents, which are also used for the tourists; may you share this with another intern. Since it is expensive to get permission for you to live in the national park, we need at least 6 months lead time for this internship.
