Stayed at Kalahari week after Christmas. Super crowded. Check in was a nightmare-took 45 minutes. Our suite was in the Sands Building. Totally beautiful and clean. Got the one w/kitchen and fireplace. Everything was really clean and in good working order. It's quite a walk from the sands building to the waterpark. Something to bear in mind if traveling w/toddlers.... More

Our trip to Kalahari was great, so much better than I had expected for an indoor theme park in wisconsin. the staff was so pleasant and very accomodating. the rooms were big enough(we have a family of 6) and very clean. our package was reasonable and had lots of meals included, the water park was a blast, the flow rider...

We go to the Kalahari every winter to ward off cabin fever. This recent trip was our 6th visit and we were not disappointed. The Kalahari has nearly everything under one roof - you don't have to leave if you don't want to. Granted, you will pay dearly for all those extras if you choose, but if you do some... More

They make it sound like they have an "all inclusive" resort but you have to pay extra for everything!!! A lot of the rides are not included and food was outrageous! If my pocketbook recovers we will go elsewhere next year.

We stayed at the Kalahari when it first opened and that was probably a mistake, because no other place can possibly measure up to it. It had been six years since we'd been there, simply because it wasn't in our budget. Last month I noticed on the site they offer a discount for armed services, police and firefighters. My husband...

We've been here one other time with a large group of pepole - stayed in the Sands. This time we stayed in the main building very close to the water park - that was excellent! The room was beautiful, large, and clean. But that seems to be where the fun ended. There are not enough rafts (the Rhino Rampage had... More

When my family and I arrived at the Kalahari we found 2 people working behind the front desk and a long line. The machine that makes the room keys was not working so we could not get into our rooms. Once this was solved we went to the waterpark. My kids went to get something to eat and the room... More

Came home from a deployment to Iraq and decided to take my wife and 2 boys to a water park in November (my boys are 18 months and 5 years). We were fortunate to get a room deal based on connections that cut our price by 50%. That being said, the water park was a blast for all of us,... More

I travel a great deal for business, so the thought of taking my family to another hotel for a long weekend wasn't all the appealing to me. Wow...I'll stay at the Kalahari anytime. Granted, it's busy, but that tells me they're doing something right. Clean..clean..clean..and all of the staff we encountered were smiling and helpful. The rooms were spacious, and... More
