    ok stay

    Gorah is a nice camp. it's located inside Addo with a waterhole and lots of animals. The management of the camp is not flexible as they were not able to organize a bush walk for us in three days. All the time only excuses. As we skipped a drive it was not possible to get at 7:30 AM an expresso as the machine has to warm up for 30 minutes. Food is ok but nothing special. The venison was just eatable. The camp is also charging extra for a glass of wine during dinner. Don't stay more than two days as drives are repeating. We had a really good guide and enjoyed the drives. Don't stay in tent 5 as it's very noisy at certain times. Lots of cars are moving around.Value for money is not there however we enjoyed very much the stay at Gorah.

    Wunderschönen, intime Anlage mitten im National Park. Die Zelte als auch das Haupthaus sind stilvoll und komfortabel eingerichtet. Das Essen abwechlungsreich und geschmacklich sehr gut. Das Personal freundlich und zuvorkommend. Es gibt keinen Wünsche die nicht erfüllt werden. Besonders hervorheben möchte ich die Guides. Habe noch nie eine Safari mit soviel Fachwissen und Passion für die Flora und Fauna erlebt

    Situé au milieu de la savane devant un point d'eau très fréquenté. Accueil chaleureux, zones communes et terrasses décorées avec goût électricité limitée et dans une ambiance "Out of Africa". La chambre/tente est magnifique, très spacieuse avec une vue à couper le souffle sur la savane. Les repas et les en-cas sont copieux, variés et raffinés malgré l'isolement extrême. Produits locaux mis en évidence. Le service est impeccable, le personnel est très attentionné et disponible. Avec Ray notre ranger nous avons pu découvrir la savane, ses animaux de toutes tailles et leurs traces. Nous avons eu les explications précieuses d'un passionné amoureux de la nature. Inoubliable. Le peu de chambres limite les véhicules ce qui permet un parcours au calme et une grande tranquillité pour les animaux.
