Gorah Elephant Camp is situated on a small private concession within the prime game viewing area of the Addo Elephant National Park and provides for a classic safari experience. Productive game drives are taken on both the concession and the public roads within the park. The basic yet luxurious camp is based around an historical homestead (with certain buildings in the main lodge dating back to the 1700s and 1800s) overlooking a vast open area with a magnet-like waterhole that attracts masses of game. One does not feel like one has to leave the confines of camp as the game viewing from each private deck and the main camp patio is exceptional. The camp is a certified ‘Green Leaf’ setup so has minimal impact on its environment. Luxury tented suites are suitably spaced out around the main lodge. Although there is minimal electrical power in the camp, guests still have the luxury of a piping hot gas heated shower and adequate basic lighting in the rooms.
