Gorah Elephant Camp (Addo Elephant National Park, Eastern Cape) South Africa
Gorah Elephant Camp, a premier camp set in a 5,000-ha
malaria-free sanctuary, is home to the densest elephant
population on earth.
Gorah Elephant Camp lies within the Addo Elephant National Park, and is about an hour's drive northeast of Port Elizabeth on South Africa's southern coast.
Raised wooden walkways lead to 11 spacious luxurious tented suites with charming en-suite bathrooms.
Each luxury tent has an en-suite bathroom with shower, an interior relaxation area and a private deck offering panoramic views across the endless savannah plains.
The rooms, lounge area and the private deck have views of the grasslands which characterize the Eastern Cape landscape which is often peppered with game. There are solar-powered ceiling fans and in-house communication between the tents and the Main House.
In the evenings guests gather in the plush and welcoming lounge for an aperitif before dinner. The camps head chef prepares world-class dishes, which are paired with some of South Africa's finest wines from Gorah's extensive collection.
The dining room is intimate, romantic and elegantly furnished; softly lit by candles and candelabra.
A vast antique table groans under a lavish and memorable breakfast spread, which can be enjoyed on a peaceful terrace facing the waterhole.
