Dining is by candle-light in the elegant dining room, or on its lazy verandas overlooking the waterhole. The sounds of the bush create a magical air of peace and tranquility, broken only by the splashing of water as the animals arrive to drink under the cover of darkness.

With arguably the best elephant viewing in South Africa, Addo is also the domain of the Cape Buffalo, Black Rhino, numerous antelope species and a host of bird life. Explore the bush with experienced rangers in open vehicles, on foot or on horseback. Gorah is close to the coast and the many other attractions of the Eastern Cape.

Addo Elephant National Park
The Addo Elephant National Park is situated 65km north of Port Elizabeth near the Zuurberg Range in the dense, indigenous bush area of the Sunday’s River Valley. The Park was proclaimed in 1931 to preserve the last survivors of once numerous herds of elephant in the Eastern Cape that were hunted almost to extinction. The park is 14,000 ha of gently undulating valley and is fenced.

Some of the game found in the Addo Elephant National Park includes:
Elephant, Lion, Burchell’s Zebra, Grey Duiker, Kudu, Ostrich, Black Rhino, Red Hartebeest, Warthog, Cape Buffalo, Eland, Black-backed Jackal, Leopard (Zuurberg), Cape Grysbok, Bat-eared Fox, Spotted Hyena, Bushbuck, and Small-Spotted Genet.

The Park is also home to an incredible 320 recorded bird species, as well as the unique flightless dung beetle found almost exclusively in Addo.
