Traveling with two toddlers and an infant is no small task. We had a multi-room suite, and it was beautiful, clean, and new. Couldn't expect more (except the little towel animals that other people seemed to post pictures of). However, it was clear that the resort catered to older kids as opposed to our little ones. The TV's didn't have... More

We stayed at Kalahari because we attended a multi-day event at the Convention Center. The convenience of being close to the venue and the amenities of the water parks, animal park and restaurants made the trip very relaxing. Highly recommend the Safari Adventures Animal Park for children of any age and adults too. The entire staff at Kalahari made us... More

We had a fantastic time at Kalahari. We have an 11-year old, 9-year old and 5-year old boy and they all loved it! There were many rides along with the wave pool in the indoor water park. We spent are first two days there and in the arcade at night. The little one also loved the treetop play area near... More

It's so nice to spend time together as a family and that your little ones enjoyed the Waterpark and especially the wave pool. Experiencing the Safari Outdoor Adventure Park and Animal Petting Zoo are great ways to feel like you've escaped from Ohio and traveled to the depths of Africa. I'm glad the rooms were nice for you and that... More

Great vacation for all ages!! The atmosphere feels tropical & not that you are just in Ohio. The African family suite far met our expectations & clean. Food delicious & conveniently located throughout the resort. Yummy candy/ice cream area. Life guards appear to put safety first & some were very friendly. Treehouse is FREE and awesome for the younger kids!!... More

Kalahari Resort in Sandusky, Ohio is a family friendly place. Both the indoor and outdoor water parks are loaded with things for all ages. My tween daughter was thrilled with the Zip Lining. We ate all our meals at the resort and the dining choices were a taste delight. I would highly recommend The Kalahari!!

Our Church planned a trip to Kalahari and we joined them. we had a wonderful stay. My daughter and her friend loved it and we could not get our son out of the pool. We enjoyed the water rides and bowling. We may be back before the year ends : ) This time we will bring more family with us.
