Internships and Placements 2018-05-30T16:27:18+00:00

Cheetah Experience Ashia and Bloemfontein encourage students in their studies. We can accommodate undergraduates, as well as students in their final years, from a wide variety of courses and backgrounds.

Cheetah Experience Ashia offers internships in many disciplines. These include animal care/ management, conservation, tourism, landscaping and sustainability. Students will be mentored and supervised by our experienced staff. If you are currently studying in one of these areas and need to complete a practical placement or internship, we have opportunities available. 

Being part of our internship program provides a unique opportunity to work with our experienced staff and cheetahs.

»  Interns will work closely with all our animals – an experience that they will cherish for the rest of their life!
»  It is of the utmost importance that our volunteers and interns share our common goal – we always put the animal’s needs first.
