We stay here two nights while we were driving across the Garden route and we absolutely loved it. Such a great way to experience the African bush in a luxury tent! Unique as it is located inside Addo Elephant Park, and very easy to get to by car. They treat you like a king, and where fabulous with our children,... More

Thank you Mark and all staff for an experience not to be forgotten! The service, food, accommodation and animal sightings were out of this world (Africa). Everything was always exactly where and when you wanted it. Thank you!!

We came for a 2 night stay in September and what an amazing experience. We pretty much had the place to our selves as it was just out of season but that didn't compromise on the service or the quality. From the bespoke menu to the quality of the food at the many many opportunities to eat we could not... More

We recently stayed at Gorah Elephant camp in August 2014. The camp is simply awesome and one is blown away the second one arrives. The staff, food, view is spectacular and the second you walk into the tent one knows that this is pure luxury. The roaring of the lions and the sounds of the hyena's at night makes one... More

Loved the tents, the game drives, and the food. Very accommodating of dietary restrictions (vegetarian, gluten-free, lactose-free was no problem for them). Also very accommodating of children (8 yr old). The only down side was discovering that about 150 euros had been taken from inside one of our bags in our tent while we were out. We had put our...

What a wonderful place, certainly puts a new light on "camping", our party of seven, myself, husband, two adult daughters, one debatable adult son, his girlfriend and our younger daughter aged 12 all adored this place. Everything about Gorah is first class and the attention to detail from the staff is second to none. Thanks to Nico for the superb... More

Amazing experience, tour guides are amazing, couldn't ask for better, in my opinion it was better seeing the not trapped in cages and able to roam around freely, this also means you may not be able to see every animal, but it doesn't matter as what other things you see are as cool. the food is beautiful except there is...

This is just perfect! The tents are amazing (though you'd better pack some warm clothes), the staff is great, the rangers are great, the food is great, and the animals are superb! I didn't know what to expect, but this is just a dream come true! A must do in your life time!

I visited Gorah Elephant camp a few weeks ago and I am still daydreaming about this place! Having been to Africa several times I have never been somewhere that caters to its guest quite like Gorah. Hot water bottles in our bed and on our game drives, candies on our pillows, and absolutely delicious food make this place a must... More

This is my idea of camping. Take a 5 star room - remove the walls and surround with canvas. Gorgeous! This was a fabulous safari. Lots of animals seen on the twice daily safaris. Lots of animals seen at the camp's water hole. Hugo - our guide - was terrific, friendly, funny and very knowledgeable. The staff were very professional... More
