We experienced everything under the African sun at African Campus. The Wildlife and Travel Photography internship not only exposed me to Africa’s amazing Big 5, Great White sharks, walking with elephants and playing with Cheetahs, I was also able to expand my knowledge into the business side of photography and networking with companies.
