Each of the 11 tented lodges in Ian Hunter’s hotel is identical, with jaw-dropping views and attention paid to every luxurious detail, but we recommend nabbing one of the two furnished with huge canopied double beds. The enormous showers have double-heads, and are eco-friendly in style, using borehole water and gas geysers. None of the rooms has any electrical appliances – the hotel is strictly an electrics-free zone.
A camera and camcorder are necessary additions to the kitbag to capture the postcard-perfect panoramas and abundant wildlife. Lions, leopard, buffalo, ostrich and antelope – not forgetting the elephants that make Addo famous – all roam nearby.
Non-smoking tents can be arranged if required.
Not suitable for children under the age of 10. Extra beds in adult tents can be provided for 10 to 14-year-olds at half-price. Packed lunches are available on request.

In addition to the game drives in the national park, walking trails, mountain biking and horse-riding are available at additional cost.
Kids are free to use the rock-framed outdoor swimming pool at any time. Lifeguards are on hand, but there is no shallow end and armbands are not supplied.
There is no set children's menu in the restaurant, but catering staff are happy to adapt meals to suit the child's needs. Packed lunches can be put together on request.
Gorah does not have facilities for children under eight. Guests over 15 years old are charged as adults and cannot share their parents' tents.
