For two adults and two children it's a fifty dollar breakfast but it's truly worth it. Anything you can imagine and twenty things you couldn't. The only thing they don't do is made to order omelets. That's the only thing that isn't available. Tons of meats and toppings for eggs made every way imaginable. They have a pastry bar that's... More

The food was okay but not great for the price. There were a lot of choices but the dessert/breakfast rolls were the best part.

Do not come to this place if you are on a diet. So much great stuff to enjoy! The best way to explain this place is being put in a position like you are a kid in a candy store.

It was ridiculously expensive, but actually pretty good. The 3 cheese ravioli was very tasty, and there were a ton of great desserts!

We stayed at Kalahari Resort for 5 days/4 nights. We had breakfast buffet all 4 mornings and had dinner buffet 2 nights. Abbie was our morning waitress 3 days. She is the best server I've ever experienced. I've praised her in every review I've written about our first vacation at Kalahari. She goes above and beyond especially for a buffet... More

We had both breakfast and dinner here. The meals were included in our hotel package and well worth it! The wait staff was beyond excellent.
