My husband and I took our 3 children(11,11,13) to Kalahari for a 2 night stay over their Thanksgiving break. We were offered a room upgrade to a 2 bedroom suite at check in. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly, water park and rooms were very clean! Erdis was the gentleman in charge of cleaning our room and he did an... More

We stayed at Kalahari in the 2 bedroom suite (highly recommend!) we traveled with a 13 year old and a 15 year old. We all had a great time! Lots to do, food was pretty good and the resort was clean. The option to just charge everything to the room is a great feature so you don't have to attempt... More

This was my 2nd time at the park with my family and we enjoyed it very much. The waterpark is great with attractions for everyone (my kids are 2, 5, and 11). It was a little chilly though and the water was pretty cold in some areas. The guest rooms are starting to show some wear and tear though and... More

We have 2 children, 5 and 8. We live an hour away from Sandusky and have gone to all the other indoor water parks in the area. This was our first trip to Kalahari. Because it was November we were limited to only indoor activities. However, we could see they had a ropes course and zip line outdoors for seasonal... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Kalahari. I came with my Daughter and God Daughters and it was great. It wasnt too crowded we had a great experience. Our room was clean and Erdis who we had for a housekeeper made sure we had everything we needed. Erdis was good with taking out our trash and getting us new towels.... More

We had taken my oldest daughter here three times by the time she was three years old and I couldn't wait to get back. Life got busy, and we didn't get back until my oldest was five and youngest was 15 months. Unfortunately, it was not the great time I remembered. The air in the water park was way too... More

We were a little worried about going after hearing the waterpark was geared only toward big kids. Our kids are two and five. They had a blast. True there was a bunch they couldn't do but they never realized they were missing anything. We played a ton in the arcade too. The rooms were very comfortable and the fireplace was... More

We have been to several waterparks in Michigan. They are fun and close. We resisted Kalahari for years because of the cost and finally jumped in and booked a 4 day visit. WOW! Worth every penny and wish we would have visited earlier. The staff was excellent. The park had attractions from infant to adult. This waterpark kept two 15... More

The energy and fun at Kalahari is wonderful. It is a great winter getaway, especially when it is frigid and snowy outside. The rooms are oversized and ample for a family of 4 (or more if the kids are small and will share a pull-out). Kalahari offers very enticing specials all year round, so plan early and shop for a...
