I visited with my wife and 3 kids, ages 16,9, & 4. I must say that the park has enough for every age to enjoy. I believe it was worth every penny we spent on the trip. If I could offer a bit of advice to any family that has a few kids running everywhere like we do, RENT THE... More

Sandusky OH Kalahari resort has so much to offer. We just returned from our 5th visit. We spent 3 nights over Memorial weekend and attended a Dance competition that our daughter participated in. Our room type was "African Queen" and had 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a living room, kitchenette, and a large balcony that overlooked the Safari Animals and the... More

We all had a great time! I stayed the first night for work, and second night for family..both nights were equally entertaining and fun! We had a great time at indoor and outdoor water park. The water park is well designed to meet the developmental needs of kids of all ages. From Babies to the Elderly, you can find something... More

Our overnight stay at Kalahari was ok. First, I find Kalahari to be very busy; that means crowded in the pools, game room, slide wait time, etc... About the waterpark: Not a lot of selections for toddlers and babies. As for adults, I tried one of the slides, and something kept on hitting my back; thought it was just me,... More

Stayed overnight with a co-worker and our daughters(18 yr old and 12 yr old). We all had fun and being attached to the water park while we were at our professional conference gave us piece of mind. Room was clean and had room for us all to spread out and enjoy a good night's sleep.

I'm thrilled to hear that everyone had fun & that you found it convenient with the Resort attached to the Waterpark. Many of those attending conventions love being able to do exactly what you did & bring their family & enjoy both their convention & a mini vacation all under one roof! We look forward to seeing you again, maybe... More

This was our third year visiting the Kalahari for a conference and our family had an excellent time! All staff we encountered were pleasant and very accommodating to our conference group. The wi-fi was much improved this year. We love the Lodge suites with full kitchen. The indoor water park was fun as always. Too bad we missed opening of... More

Attended a conference at Kalahari. The convention center was great. Every employee we met was friendly and helpful. Erdis went out of his way to help us find the snack bar when we were wandering the halls after leaving the convention center. Bob, our bell hop, delivered our luggage and us to 2 different rooms in 2 different wings. He... More

We recently attended a conference at the resort and booked a combination room. We were very pleased with our room and the fully supplied kitchen. The water park was a hit and enjoyed by all. I thought the staff was very friendly and helpful. Our first night there, we had a issue with an overhead light and maintenance came promptly... More

Awesome place for a family vacation... or just me alone. Love the Flow Rider. Love the lifeguards (some of course are more charming than others -some will take 30 seconds to give you a tip or two on the Flow... others will not). Turns out that the May 20 week there is a Homeschooling Convention there... so the park is... More

I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the flowrider, it is one of our most popular attractions & that you found our lifeguards to be charming. I am also delighted to hear that you had a pleasant experience at the front desk despite a mixup with your credit cards, which I will be sure to forward to our Front Office... More

By far, my favorite part of the stay was how polite and respectful the staff was to me and my kids. So often children are yelled at for just having fun and that didn't happen at all. My kids had a great time!
