Addo Game Reserve – Gorah Elephant Camp

19 Jun

Elephants. Over 350 roaming elephants. What better selling point is there than that?

Addo Elephant Park was proclaimed in 1931 as a fortress for the 11 remaining African elephants in the area. As the elephant population increased and the park became more successful the surrounding land and adjacent farms were acquired and has resulted in the Addo National Park covering an impressive 492 000 hectares.


Right in the heart of this national park is The Gorah House, a restored 19th century abode boasting splendid furnishings and an air of noble opulence unique to that era. Surrounding the house are 10 luxurious tented suites offering all the comfort and authenticity associated with class African game lodges while still maintaining the romance and magnificence of the 1900’s.

On the doorstep of these tented suites is a glinting rock swimming pool enveloped by sun-drenched wooden decks and a boma offering guests the chance to experience traditional African cooking beneath twinkling stars.

African Elephants

The Addo Elephant Park is an experience like no other, so if you find yourself searching for Addo lodges I suggest you remember this name: Gorah Elephant Camp.
