The incomparable thrill of quietly observing a passing herd of elephant 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 is the only private concession and Camp situated in the middle of the famous Addo Elephant National Park, home to the densest population of elephants on earth. Gorah is malaria-free, Big 5 and a member of Relais & Chateaux.
The 5 000 hectare private concession is located deep in the heart of the Addo Elephant National Park, 70km north-east of the Eastern Cape coastal city of Port Elizabeth, the nearest centre with a major airport.
Sheltered beneath thatched canopies, Gorah’s 11 tented suites are luxurious and spacious, recalling the golden era of safari in the early 1900s, and enhanced with the fine comforts and excellence associated with Hunter properties. Each luxury tent has an en-suite bathroom with shower, an interior relaxation area and a private deck offering panoramic views across the endless savannah plains. Other facilities include solar-powered lights, ceiling fans and in-house communication between the tents and the Main House.
Guest facilities are in the historic and beautifully set Gorah Manor House. Indoor dining is a culinary occasion with candle lit corners and paraffin lanterns (the camp runs on solar and generator power), outdoor dining is al fresco on the open verandah with views over the waterhole or under the African sky in the outdoor boma.
There is a lounge with a fireplace, a swimming pool with sun loungers, complimentary Wi-Fi in the reception area and a curio store. Activities from Gorah include guided daily game drives (within the concession or greater Addo Park) in the morning and afternoon and bush walks.
