About Gorah Elephant Camp
Discover a sense of place and time in tune with the authentic African safari of centuries past. This is Gorah. The first private concession in a National Park, is a premier lodge set in the heart of the malaria-free Addo Elephant National Park, home to the densest elephant population on earth. The Gorah House restored to its 19th century colonial splendour and period furnished, the main house reflects a noble opulence and delivers the meticulous service and attention to detail that characterises Hunter's properties. Member of 'Relais and Chateaux'.
The romantic atmosphere of the eleven spacious and luxurious tented suites, recalls the golden era of safari in the early 1900's; yet with the comfort and excellence associated with Africa's finest game lodges.
Dining is by candlelight in the elegant dining room, or on its lazy verandas overlooking the waterhole. The sounds of the bush create a magical air of peace and tranquillity, broken only by the splashing of water as the animals arrive to drink under the cover of darkness. Guests can relax in the boma area with its beautiful rock swimming pool and sun-drenched decks. Experience the African tradition of cooking and eating under the stars.
Whether experiencing the majesty of elephant herds gathering by the waterhole, or encounters at matchlessly close range, the Gorah experience is totally unique. And perfectly compliments your Garden Route Adventure. With arguably the best elephant viewing in South Africa, Addo is also the domain of the Cape Buffalo, Black Rhino, numerous antelope species and a wealth of bird life. Maximum two children sharing per unit.
