Elephants came up to the verandah

Posted May 10, 2015
Pros: Faultless blending of historical authenticity with modern comforts.
Cons: Nothing. There was some wi-fi reception in the main lodge but it was a joy to be free of the intrusion of technology. No telephones, television, news.
Location: Glorious. lush hills covered in fynbos shrubs, acacia, euphorbia. Great sweeping views and huge African skies. The stars were almost overpowering.
An almost flawless establishment. Eleven thatched permanent tents perched above an authentic old farmstead, now exquisitely restored with atmospheric old prints, lanterns, rugs. Zebra, hartebeest, ostriches came down from the rolling hills to the waterhole beneath the verandah--where extraordinary food was served throughout the day. A hearty breakfast after the morning drive; a light lunch of homemade delicacies and a rainbow of fruit; high tea with scones. Dinner was served on solid mahogany tables in a warren of rooms lit entirely by candles. The beds were huge, with comforting hot water bottles; his-and-hers basins in a well-equipped bathroom to the rear of the tents; everything spotless. A simple but sophisticated update of the safaris of yesteryear with every need catered for. The drives were run by friendly and sympathetic guides with boundless knowledge of the park and respect for all the creatures we met. I cannot recommend Gorah Elephant Camp highly enough.

Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt im Gorah sehr genossen! Die Traumhafte Lage mitten in der Wildnis kombiniert mit Nostalgie, hervorragendem Service und guter Küche sowie angenehmen Gästen sorgten für ein rundum tolles Ferienerlebnis.

Tolle Safari Erlebnisse

Posted Jan 20, 2014 on Hotels
Wir haben eine super tolle Zeit im Gorah Elephant Camp gehabt. Die Luxus Zelte sind sehr komfortabel und wir konnten eine super Aussicht auf das Wasserloch geniessen. Die Drives mit unserem Ranger Courtney waren sensationell. Wir haben sehr viele Tiere gesehen und Courtney hatte viel Interessantes zu erzählen. Er hat an einem Abend den Drive ein bisschen verlängert und dadurch haben wir noch ein Nashorn zu sehen bekommen! Das Essen ist gut, der Service ok. Wir konnten die Zeit im Camp richtig geniessen, einzig die Chefin Louise würde gut daran tun, ein bisschen mehr Freundlichkeit und Gastfreundschaft auszustrahlen.

Uniquely Memorable Experience

Posted Dec 21, 2013 on Hotels
From the time we first arrived at Gorah, we knew this would be an unforgettable experience, and were not disappointed. The lodge, tent, locale, staff, cuisine and service were all first rate. That is to say nothing of the experience at the Gorah Camp, where your neighbors are native elephants and wild animals, and the twice-a-day safaris, with interesting ‘ranger’ guides such as Devon, who was so knowledgeable and personable. Making friends with the other visitors as well added to overall experience. The many photos we took will make this adventure a lasting experience.
