Gorah Elephant

Colonial manor house and tented suites deliver an elegant experience, the only private concession in Addo – close encounters will peaceful elephants guaranteed.

Eastern Cape

At the end of the Garden Route which makes it easy to combine with Cape Town, and it’s malaria free. Plenty to see for a first safari, but reserves are smaller and numbers of animals are lower. Addo’s elephants are so peaceful I’ve walked right up to them. It’s not classic acacia & savanna Africa, with dense bushes and undulating hills, and not all reserves are Big 5. Gentle, comfortable camps are child friendly, with a/c and heating for chilly winters. South Africa.
