Gorah is a nicely located private lodge within the Addo National Park, with private meaning most luxury and exclusive. Game drives are on a private concession, but animals roam free between the private concession and the rest of the park, so you can get a lot of elephants, lions and buffalo or a bit less, depending on your guides know...

Went for 2 days, after visiting two others game ranges. This one was the more expensive one, and it turned to be the worst one too. The ranger called Hugo was really annoying, didnt know a lot about the animals, and he kept laughing in the radio talking with his brother. I made the mistake of leaving a few dolars... More

Dear Juanca Oribe Thank you so much for your open and candid review. We are appalled at the incident of your wallet in your room and I will personally look into it. As to the radio etiquette that was displayed by Hugo there is no excuse and has been dealt with. The rangers however have to pass a certain code... More

Perfect in every way, from the luxury tent to the special game drive to the amazing food. To sit eating breakfast and experience various wild animals wondering to have a drink at the water hole just outside! Bliss. Passionate rangers being truly keen to deliver guests dreams. A feeling of freedom and peace.

This camp was the last stop on our 'Garden Route' holiday and it certainly ended our holiday in a fabulous way. The tented camp and game lodge were superb. We arrived and in no time our luggage was taken and the car parked out of sight somewhere and refreshments offered us. Lunch quickly followed and then the first game drive.... More

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

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.

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
