Welcome to Otium Oasis

The meaning of Otium: 

Otium-a Latin abstract term, has a variety of meanings, including leisure time in which a person can enjoy eating, playing, resting, contemplation and academic endeavors. It sometimes, but not always, relates to a time in a person's retirement after previous service to the public or private sector, opposing "active public life". Otium can be a temporary time of leisure, that is sporadic. It can have intellectual, virtuous or immoral implications. It originally had the idea of withdrawing from one's daily business (negotium = neg-otium) or affairs to engage in activities that were considered to be artistically valuable or enlightening. It had particular meaning to businessmen, diplomats, philosophers and poets.

Our vision is to create and share a place of relaxation. We bring you Otium Oasis Glamping & Camping . This rustic, yet serene farm, covered in fynbos and shady trees, is meant to be shared with others and so our visitors can come and spend quality time in a tranquil and peaceful environment. Enjoy nature whilst surrounded by our springbuck, zebras, alpacas and other animals. Or simply relax at the pool and playground. 

Life is intended to be unrushed here...

Otium Oasis is a perfect destination for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts with its prolific bird life, abundance of fynbos, herd of free roaming springbok and panoramic view of the mountains and countryside. 


Our tented chalets are rustic, yet elegant. Each tent has a fully-equipped kitchenette, bathroom, lounge, deck and private braai area. For the hot and sunny days, take a dip in our splash pool or just relax and have a braai! Ask us about our beautiful view point of the valley if you are looking to take a walk in the breathtaking surroundings of our farm.


We have a jungle gym for younger children and a petting farm with our alpaca brothers, Chaos and Thumper, and their friend Zoey the Zebra. Among others we have two potbelly pigs(Daisy and Rooski) who just recently joined our big family.
