Oaklands was founded in 1860 by Bob Hall, an English millionaire who acquired the property as a gift for his wife. Initially run as a game farm, Oaklands took its name from an Oak forest that was planted nearby to supply duiselbooms - the long poles that hitched oxen to their wagons. The property has since been owned and managed by a string of colourful characters including a clairvoyant who is said to have hosted séances on hotel`s upper floors, and a South African provincial cricket captain.
