Summary

What we do

Having sprinted ahead of the pack in 2004 as an early anticipator of the online travel boom, we at Rhino Africa have long since cemented our place at the crossroads where travel and technology meet. Today, we employ 200+ people from over 20 countries, advertise in more than 30 markets and operate in 5 different languages around the world. Each year, working with over 2,000 partners and suppliers across Africa, we tailor-make luxury safari holidays for more than 20,000 clients and fill upwards of 120,000 bednights by ensuring that our customers experience the best that this continent has to offer.

Simply put, we take care of the small things so that our clients’ big dreams come true. Some people wait their whole lives to get the chance to visit Africa and we are here to make these life-long dreams a reality. Through our unparalleled passion, dedication and expertise we are able to cater for every aspect of our clients’ needs and wishes, ensuring that our end product is always an unforgettable, incomparable trip of a lifetime.

Why work for us?

Rhino Africa's investment philosophy throughout the past decade has been guided by our firm belief that through investment in tourism, we can provide a long-term positive impact to communities and conservation initiatives. We see tourism as a transformational industry and one that has the power to affect real economic change and upliftment. Since 2004, Rhino Africa has identified champions and backed their causes by providing coaching, mentorship, financial aid and infrastructural aid. We want to be Africa’s ambassadors, to leave a legacy to be proud of for generations still to come - one of prosperity, education, compassion, and reverence for this continent and all it has to offer.

Along the way, we've been awarded the title of "Africa’s Leading Safari Company" by the World Travel Awards, the Oscars of the travel industry, five times in a row (2013-2017)!

What you'll be building

At Rhino Africa, we develop ground-breaking technology that connects luxury African travel companies with international clientele. Our goal is simple: to seamlessly connect the luxury African travel market with those that wish to experience it, from anywhere in the world.

At our Cape Town HQ, we generate premium-quality programs and websites that are inspirational and informative, ensuring global engagement with users across mobile, tablet and desktop. From robust systems used daily by our consultants to customer-facing sites and interactive documentation, we strive to bridge the gap between our clients, our consultants and our partners, through technology.
