My family love Kalahari one thing that needs to change is the water park hours needs to be longer with the summer coming visitors will love to hang out longer at the water park instead of closing at nine can close at ten or eleven. Please consider otherwise it is a great place to be with your family.

Our family of five stayed in the African Queen suite, which had plenty of space. The two showers were a plus upon returning from the waterpark. The layout of the room made it better for parents to have a good trip, as they can have a separate space. We didn't know the room had a microwave and fridge, which was... More

Hi David! The African Queen suite is a great suite for families, I'm disappointing you felt it was a long walk to the waterpark & restaurants. Ultimately, I hope you had a blast & created fantastic memories with your family. I remain in hopes of seeing you again soon. More

Doug at the valet (free for disabled) was incredibly nice and helpful and very welcoming. I am disabled with a rollator but the place is so big so he got me a loaner wheelchair, talked to our kids about their offerings, etc. In the arcade my daughter won a giant soccer ball instead if the volleyball she really wanted and...

Our family had an awesome time at Kalahari, highly recommend it as a quick, relaxing two or three day get away. Great quality family time with our 8/10/12 year old children. We plan on returning this summer to give the outdoor area a try.

We arrived around 12, and our Hut Room was available. Check in is at 4, but you can start using the park at 12. The park was clean, food was good, and everybody was helpful. The cabanas are nice! Can't wait to go back!

Just spent a nice 2 night getaway. Stayed in the African Suite with 5 people. Everything from the spacious very clean room to every staff member we had contact with was spot on. Although, the rooms are expensive I felt they are worth the money. As far as the cost of food and drinks appeared to be in line with... More
