Gorah, the first private concession in a National Park in the Cape, is a 5 000 ha malaria free sanctuary set right in the heart of the Addo Elephant National Park, home to the densest elephant population on earth. The gracious main house, built in 1856, has been immaculately restored and period furnished, recalling the opulence and romance of a noble safari. Lazy colonial verandahs spill out onto the African plains, and luxury tented suites with thatched canopies, comfy king size beds and private terraces perch over the panoramic landscape - personalised, warm and unobtrusive service with meticulous attention to detail.
Together with the thrill of close up elephant encounters, arguably of the best in South Africa, see black rhino, the unique Cape buffalo herds, numerous antelope species, a wealth of bird life and Addo's endangered flightless dung beetle. With a superb boma and candle-lit dining, guided bush walks, horseback rides and open vehicle drives, or a laze at the poolside, this new and exciting game experience perfectly complements your Garden Route adventure. An easy forty minute drive from Port Elizabeth Airport.
