This is a one of a kind experience that is simply incredible. The main lodge is historic built in 1828 with a beautiful back deck overlooking a watering hole that animals come to day and night. You can’t get closer than this. Sleeping accommodations in wonderful tents with king bed and attached bathroom. Private garden and swimming pool near lodge. Price includes lunch, high tea, dinner and breakfast and all fantastic on menus designed for you, as well as 2x 3 hr rides to see wildlife, which includes rhino, buffalo, lions and elephants. This is a magical experience and you will be in awe. Service and staff truly wonderful.

This place is magical!! The main house was built in 1823 and some of the furniture is from the same era with amazing carvings. The tent we stayed in is spacious with everything you need. Comfortable bed and most amazing are the animals hanging outside your room. The staff makes you feel like royalty. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Amazing. Staff couldn’t be better. Guides were terrific. Those looking for a zoo where lots of animals are around every corner will be disappointed. However there are plenty to see and it’s possible to get very close to some. Magical experience

Excellent Safara Accomoodatin in PE area
It was an awesome experience to finish our holiday in South Africa at Gorah. Sleeping in luxury tents in the wild was something that me and my family will never forget. Accommodation was fantastic, service was out of this world, the staff were so friendly and helpful. Gorah may be a little more expensive than other places, however the experience is totally worth it. Look forward to visiting again.
