Accommodation & Dining

Opulence and sophistication in an African landscape

The 1900’s was a time when the elite indulged in the extravagance of crystal, polished silver, white linen and G&T’s in the afternoon. At Gorah, guests are transported back to this era through the day-to-day luxuries offered at the Camp.


Tented Suites

11 stylish tented suites entice you to stay

Sheltered under thatched canopies, Gorah’s 11 tented suites are luxurious and spacious, recalling the golden era of safari in the early 1900s. Each is enhanced with the fine comforts and excellence associated with Hunter Hotels.

Each lavish tent has its own private deck offering a panoramic view of the endless savannah plains. The plush interior of the tent is enhanced through the simplicity and the authenticity of solar power lighting and ceiling fans. The en suite bathroom with bespoke vanities and shower is discreetly situated to allow for complete privacy. To complete the experience the tented suite invites you to completely relax and unwind with a book on the comfy couch, or take an afternoon nap on the king size bed, with 300 count cotton sheets enveloping you and sending you to dreamland.


Indoor Dining

A culinary occasion

Dinner is a real occasion at Gorah. As you enter Gorah House with its historic magnificence, the magic surrounds you.

Candle lit ‘secret’ corners with warm fires and paraffin lanterns put a soft layer of romance on the entire house in winter. During summer the open veranda doors invitingly coax in the evening breeze, while the mood is set for a sumptuous meal. Estate wines carefully chosen to elevate the meal, and a good selection of international beverages, enhance the dining experience. Decadent desserts complete the experience, teasing your senses as you ponder your next safari adventure. Our chefs are committed to serve freshly prepared dishes and will deliciously satisfy any dietary requirements.

Outdoor Dining

Al fresco dining under the African sky

The veranda at the front of the colonial Gorah House overlooks the watering hole and the plains behind it. An idyllic setting to enjoy ‘el fresco’ dining, deliciously prepared daily by our Gorah chefs with passion and creativity.

The outdoor Boma is another gathering place for dinner under the vast African sky. Open fires light up the night, exuding warmth as you relax to the time honoured art of cooking on wood and coal. The Gorah chefs have perfected the art of an extravagant outdoor gourmet barbeque, with an array of dishes reflecting different aspects of African cuisine. Share stories, indulge in the fare and take in the sounds of the night as you dine.
