Overview of Gorah Elephant Camp

Gorah Elephant Camp is a premier lodge set in the heart of the malaria-free Addo Elephant National Park, home to the densest elephant population in South Africa. The main house has been restored in the colonial style of the 19th century, with beautiful attention to detail. Antiques and original wood furniture are found throughout the lodge, and echo the golden era of African safaris.

During the day, relax in the thatched boma, stroll through the garden, or enjoy a dip in the rock swimming pool. Explore Addo on an open-vehicle game drive, on foot, or on horseback. With arguably the best elephant viewing in South Africa, Addo is also home to the rest of the Big 5, numerous antelope species and a wealth of birdlife.
