The incomparable thrill of quietly observing a passing herd of elephant while being served tea on the verandah 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 a member of Relais & Chateaux.
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.
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 and leopard, as well as numerous species of antelope and small game. For birding enthusiasts, Addo has 320 recorded bird species.
