We have made the trip to Kalahari for several years in a row. My son loves visiting, he gave me the title of the review! He loves all the attractions! We have only gone in the winter, so we have never experienced the outdoor pools. We joined their email club and usually can get a pretty good deal that includes... More

Our family had a wonderful time and did not want to go home. I was a little skeptical upon arrival, We arrived at 1pm on a Sunday and the line to check in was extremely long. It was almost a little overwhelming! Once we got through that, we were loving it. We went to the water park while they got... More

This was our fourth trip to this resort in as many years. As always, the rooms and waterpark were very clean. I was disappointed that the restaurant has changed. Our 10 year old daughter and friends used to love the activity during dinner, music, limbo contests, hula hoop contests, etc. We learned after we were seated that they no longer... More
