Gorah Elephant Camp

The comparative thrill of quietly observing a passing herd of elephants 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 safaris 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 and offers the Big 5.

Need to Know

Each of the 11 lavish tents has its own private deck offering a panoramic view of the endless savannah plains. The plush interior of the tent is enhanced through the simplicity and the authenticity of solar power lighting and ceiling fans. The en-suite bathroom with bespoke vanities and shower is discreetly situated to allow for complete privacy. To complete the experience the tented suite invites you to completely relax and unwind with a book on the comfy couch or take a nap before your afternoon safari on the king size bed with 300 count cotton sheets, enveloping you and sending you to your calming dreamland.


Morning and Afternoon Game Drives at Gorah, expertly led by passionate and professional guides, are a testament to the safari of old. Intrepidly seeking and searching the vast terrain for animals is the essence of the experience and long after arriving back at camp the excitement of seeing Elephant, Black Rhino, Lion, Buffalo, Cheetah, Hyena and Plains Game in their natural habitat, lingers.
