About Otium Oasis Glamping & Camping

Otium Oasis Glamping and Camping in Tesselaarsdal is surrounded by the majestic mountains of the Overberg. Escape to the serenity of Otium Oasis – the ultimate relaxation getaway experience. Tesselaarsdal is situated in close proximity to Caledon, 21 kilometres, Stanford, 38 kilometres, Hermanus, 45 kilometres and Cape Town, 150 kilometres. Please note the last twenty minutes is dirt road.

Otium Oasis is owned by the Nel family. This rustic, yet serene farm, covered in fynbos and shady trees, was meant to be shared with others and so we created Otium Oasis Glamping and Camping where visitors can come and spend quality time in a tranquil and peaceful environment.

Creating Otium has been a labour of love, from building our tented chalets and camping area, acquiring our much-loved springbuck, zebra, alpacas and other animals, to installing the pool and playground. We have certainly fulfilled our dream of creating a sanctuary for all to enjoy.

Family friendly: Premises are safe and contains a children playground and swimmingpool. Interaction with the resident Alpacas and other animals are encouraged. Safe area for cycling on the premises.

Romantic: Alpaca tent is ideal for a romantic getaway. Set apart from the other tents affords you all the privacy you will enjoy. Fully equipped.

Covid Safety Approved: Our property is prepared according to FEDHASA guidelines. Our staff have been trained on COVID -19 preparedness, including PPE, hand hygiene, social distancing and wearing masks. We clean our property with all mandatory disinfectants.

                              Thank you to the hosts. You really made us feel welcome. The special touches like the rusks and Easter eggs was beyond our expectations. A very well equipped tent that met our every need. Only one suggestion is to make a head board for the king bed to prevent pillows falling off at the back. A most enjoyable stay which will be recommended to others as well as a possible return visit. Thanks

                              Our hosts were a delight. Nothing was too much trouble. One has everything one needs to enjoy the great outdoors. Location is perfect. The weather was not. So our MTBing went out the window. But it is apparently good MTB territory. Will be back.
