I've decided to try to get an internship for the summer of 2011 and I figured I'd start looking right now. I've been to Africa only once but I really liked it and would like to spend some more time there. I thought that getting an internship there over the summer would be the perfect way of combining pleasure with work.
My question is whether an internship at a consulting firm in, let's say Johannesburg, would be much worse than the same internship in any European captial city.
It seems obvious that an internship in Johannesburg wouldn't be as good as an internship in London or Paris, but how much worse is it?
Also I would like to know if anyone here has experience with consulting internships in Africa or any other kind of internships in Africa for that matter. And since I might be too young for a consulting internship (still undergrad) what could I do instead?
All answers appreciated
