Nyasha MvengeBiology Internship | Cape Town
I asked for a placement that involved research and lab work which was exactly what I got when I arrived. However, I’ve since also received training at a hospital which was my number one goal. So all in all I have gotten back far more than I had originally expected. I am super thrilled that not only am I achieving what I set out to do but I will leave with totally new skills. The location of the placement is also a bonus. Not many people can say they conducted their work with stunning scenery of a mountain and animals like wildebeest and impala right in front of them. On weekends there is so much to do, you truly never get bored. I am certain I made the right choice choosing Connect-123.

After some...

My internship allowed me to work closely with a local veterinarian and do research at a nature reserve situated about 20 minutes from the city center. Although I was having some issues with my internship in the beginning, Mary...

I became an official Connect123 intern in September 2008. Little did I know, I was about to embark on one of the biggest adventures I have ever experienced! I heard about Connect-123 through my friend, Crystal Fisher, who had applied to the internship program. We both constantly have the itch to travel, so when she told me about the journey she was about to take, I was all ears. After...

Connect-123 provides an incredible opportunity to gain a unique experience in a remarkable culture. Traveling as a tourist is limited by achieving only a surface knowledge of a country, whereby living and working there offers an insight into a country’s distinctive features. Through Connect-123, I was able to spend six weeks working in marine conservation. My office was square miles of protected beach fronts and hiking trails, my desk a...

Working through Connect-123 made everything easy. The internship I did was perfect for me, and the individual attention that I got really made me feel comfortable about traveling to Cape Town. The Connect-123 group get-togethers were a great way to really experience what the Western Cape has to offer and I can’t wait to come back.
