Gorah Elephant Camp is the most exclusive safari lodge in the Addo Elephant National Park.
Gorah Elephant Camp is the only private concession and camp in the Addo Elephant National Park. Situated in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa, the area is not only the home of one of the densest population of elephants, but the whole area is steeped in rich cultural and natural history. It is a history of colonialist expansion, war between peoples and wonderful natural diversity.
Gorah Elephant Camp captures a bygone era, providing guests with the opportunity to experience the Africa of old - explorer-style. Eleven opulent tents, filled with stylish designs and luxury comforts, will make guests want to stay forever. The tents are sheltered from the African sun by an overhead thatched canopy and a private deck ensuring unencumbered views of the surrounding savanna.
The will not only pamper guests in terms of the lavish accommodation, but also the delightful cuisine offered. Enjoy dinner in a cozy candlelit corner, or breakfast and lunch on the veranda while gazing out over the African landscape. Dinners may also be enjoyed in the outdoor boma, where the Gorah chefs have perfected the art of gourmet barbecue under the star-studded African sky.
The game drives in the company of Gorah's expert guides will be a once in a lifetime experience. Safaris at Gorah will bring guests up close and personal with Africa and its natural inhabitants, making your stay an authentic safari experience. The proximity of historical towns such as Grahamstown, with its yearly arts festival, as well as the Indian Ocean with its opportunities for deep sea fishing, scuba diving and whale and dolphin watching makes the camp the premier destination for a luxury, five star South African safari.
From O R Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg, guests will fly to Port Elizabeth Airport and then be transferred to Gorah Elephant Camp in the green belly of Addo Elephant National Park for their safari adventure. Game drives offer sightings of the Big Five and seemingly endless encounters with one of the heaviest elephant populations on the continent. The curious grey giants may even visit you at your luxury tent or eye you swimming in Gorah House's pool.
Enjoy breakfast, lunch and sundowners in the garden or on the terrace with its uninterrupted views of the bush and the local waterhole. Dinner is a candlelit, colonial affair in Gorah House's dining room. Though not included in this safari package, additional activities on offer in the area include horse riding in the park, mountain biking trails, golf excursions, fishing, diving and canoeing.
