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.

Property Facilities:
Delicious and lavish gourmet cuisine is served either in the elegant, softly lit dining rooms of the Main House or on the old-style veranda overlooking the waterhole or, weather permitting, under the stars in the open boma surrounded by the sounds of the African bush.

The animals are not scared of the vehicles travelling near them. We experienced some real magic moments in Addo.

Superb. 5 out of 5
