Gorah Elephant Camp

Addo Elephant National Park Addo, Eastern Cape, Addo 6105

About Gorah Elephant Camp

The incomparable thrill of quietly observing a passing herd of elephant, lion and general game, while being served tea on the veranda of a stately colonial manor house is the stuff of dreams and legends - at Gorah it's an everyday occurrence. This exclusive safari lodge recaptures the romantic mystique of authentic safari of centuries past - the awesome natural world of Africa merged with colonial nostalgia and modern sophistication to deliver an unforgettably unique 5 star adventure. Gorah Elephant Camp is part of Hunter Hotels.

Located in the heart of the Big 5 Addo Elephant National Park in the malaria-free Eastern Cape, Gorah was the first private concession ever awarded in a South African National Park. Near the Zuurberg Mountain range in the dense, indigenous bushveld of the Sunday's River Valley, the 14,000 hectare fenced park was proclaimed in 1931 to preserve the last remaining survivors of the once large herds of elephant that roamed the Eastern Cape. Hunted almost to extinction, these herds have gradually flourished and Addo now boasts the highest density of elephant on earth. It is also home to other big game such as lion, black rhino, buffalo, cheetah, hyena and leopard, as well as numerous species of antelope and small game. For birding enthusiasts, Addo has 320 recorded bird species.

Originally built in 1856, the Gorah House is a National Monument, fully restored to reflect the grace and glory of those times with elegant period furnishings instilling an ambience of comfort and opulence. Ensconced in armchairs around the original fireplaces of welcoming, comfy lounges, stories of the day's adventures unfold. For those wishing to discover more about the region, there is a small library with a selection of reference books available.

The comings and goings of wildlife around the waterhole situated in front of the main veranda are a constant source of fascination. The sparkling swimming pool is the perfect place to beat the African heat, otherwise simply relax on the sun decks or in the shade of the porches and patios at Gorah House.

Our stay at Gorah this past weekend was nothing short of spectacular. Every single staff member is friendly and will go out of their way to help you. The personal touch to each activity and the hand written notes make the entire experience very special. The staff really did go above and beyond to make our stay special and memorable.

We had a wonderful stay with several game drives at this beautifully located lodge just next to a water hole. A big thank you to Cheryl and the whole team for their outstanding hospitality and service. And a very special thank you to our excellent guide, Kevin.

The ultimate in style combined with old world heritage. This is a resort where no effort is spared to make the guests experience only the best in accommodation, food, service and ultimately a wildlife adventure. This is right up there on the top shelf. Coming to Gorah is a great move... one of my best experiences.

Our expectations were truly exceeded at Gorrah. We had an amazing three night stay and the staff were absolutely fantastic - shout out to Justin, Elizabeth, Donald, Siya and Cheryl (and everyone else). Nothing was too much for them and they accommodated our every request. The food was absolutely delicious and the team kindly worked around all our dietary requirements. The lodge is situated around a watering hole in the middle of the bush and you truly experience the beauty of nature - stumbling across zebras walking to the tent to watching elephants whilst eating breakfast. Justin, our ranger was a fountain of knowledge, patiently explaining everything we were seeing and ensuring that we got the best from the experience. A huge thank you to the whole team for giving us memories of a lifetime. The Dwek family.

The BEST of the best! We have travelled the world and been to amazing places and stayed at luxurious hotels, but Gorah was so far the best experience we ever had! This place is just magical! We loved and enjoyed every second of our stay. The staff is fantastic, the game drives with our guide Kevin were an exceptional experience! We absolutely fell in love with Gorah and will come back for sure!
