We stayed at Gorah for 2 nights last month and it was a truly memorable experience. It was like a wonderful dream to eat breakfast & lunch at the lodge while herds of buffalo, zebra & elephants took their turns to drink at the waterhole which is only a few meters away. We could also see the waterhole from our...

This is the second time we visited Gorah Elephant Camp and it was both times absolutely spectacular. The tents are very luxurious. The safari guides are very experienced and you see lots of animals. The park has more than 700 elephants so this is a feast for everyone that loves a great safari experience. Food is average but the ambiance...

We were pampered in this lovely place. Animals come up to drink at the water hole just outside the main house. It was blissful watching elephants and zebras walking by. Staff was great. Game drives were fun, lots of elephants and zebras. Perfect place to start game viewing if your on your way to kruger area.

Just had a 4 night stay here and it's perfect. 2 game drives a day, our superb ranger was Riaan. So many animals seen that I can't list them, but we did see 4 of the "Big 5" (the leopard was shy). Excellent accommodation with power etc. Food superb and all requirements catered for. Thanks to all the Team!

We were very lucky to stay here for 4 nights. Everything was fantastic. Luxury lodges are comfortable with great facilities. Just expect that animal noises might wake you sometimes! We had power when needed and even wifi is good. Meals were all great - from breakfast, afternoon tea and through to dinner. Drinks included in the package was a little...

This place is perfection! From the very warm welcome to the food, to the accommodation to the game drives. Everyone is incredible friendly, courteous, professional and knowledgeable. We spent 3 weeks in South Africa and this was the highlight.The glamourous "tents" have views of the surrounding hills and are frequented by wildlife. The bar is fully stocked and complimentary with...
