The 'gora' was a Khoikhoi musical bow incorporating a quill or reed across which the player would blow to produce a sound with a rhythm reminiscent of the southern black korhaan, a ground-dwelling bustard.

The Garden Route and Little Karoo within the Western Cape of South Africa has for long been overlooked as a safari destinationThe area often hid in the shadows of conservation giants in the likes of the Greater Kruger National Park. This is largely due to the fact that the impacts of settling humanity has had a greater effect in the Cape, with many species becoming locally extinct during the colonial era. Despite the immense floral diversity that the Cape of South Africa is renowned for, many of the iconic species have disappeared and are now being reintroduced.

Come experience the weaving of a reviving wilderness area as the Gora Wilderness Reserve is expanding its borders.
