Why Cameron Cottage?

beautiful, private, very affordable...

Petite (90 m2) private, fully-equipped, upscale self-catering house just inside the gates of Marloth Park.  Two bedrooms, each with en suite bathroom, open kitchen and lounge area, large covered stoep (porch), and stunning over-sized swimming pool. No other houses in view. Simple, high-end decor. All quality linens and basics included. Chef's kitchen, washing machine, outdoor braai and separate fire pit -  everything you need to enjoy a simple, carefree South African bush holiday.

wildlife on your doorstep - literally!

We are situated in Marloth Park, a conservancy area bordering Kruger Park, which houses various boutique lodges and private holiday homes. Marloth has its own population of wild but gentle zebra, giraffe, kudu, impala, ostrich, wildebeest, warthog, etc., many of which will walk right up to you. There are also numerous birds, reptiles, and insects. Marloth borders the Crocodile River, Kruger Park's southernmost boundary, and is separated from Kruger and the "Big Five" only by an electric fence.


fantastic location bordering Kruger Park

We are just inside Marloth's gate #2, which means 15 minute access, via paved roads, out of Marloth Park and over to the Crocodile Bridge Gate into fabulous Kruger National Park. It's 20 minutes from Cameron Cottage to the town of Komatipoort (near the Croc Bridge gate), which has a large modern supermarket, shops, multiple restaurants, a post office, and several banks where you can directly withdraw South African Rand from the ATM on your foreign debit /bank card.

This is a private and loved home; we are happy to share it with you

This is not a generic rental. As a single mom, I brought my daughter to South Africa as her 12th birthday gift, and we fell in love with the country, wildlife, and friendly people. Two years and multiple visits later, I bought this house. I adore my home country Canada and its wilderness - and the beauty of the over 45 countries I've also traveled to (working for National Geographic and Discovery Channel has its perks!) - but I somehow felt the need to have my own little piece of "the bush". Crazy? Probably. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do! And note that almost every photo on this web site was taken by me or my friends in and near the house. They are absolutely not "stock" photos!
