We spent 3 fun filled nights at the Kalahari resort during the peak summer season and have nothing but good things to report. This property rates right up there with the Beaches chain in catering to families.
The value at this resort was excellent as I booked a hut room on a beat the clock deal which included theme park passes. The theme park provided hours of entertainment and was a nice break from being wet at the waterparks.
Part of what I loved about the resort was there is one indoor park, one outdoor park and the theme park. Everything is contained within those areas unlike Wilderness which smaller parks are spread out between 3 hotels.
The indoor waterpark had so many slide options, lazy river, wave pool, outdoor hot tubs and even a swim up bar.
The outdoor waterpark was also a blast and neither park was ever overcrowded. We found going in early in the morning and late in the evening we had little to no waits for the most popular slides.
There are a few dining options on site and several more in the nearby area. The outlet mall is just across the street.
The free passes included to the Tommy Bartlett show were a bonus and we loved the show. I didn’t take the warning others have offered on Timbavati and found out for ourselves it was a waste of time. A tourist trap really and thank goodness we didn’t pay to get in.
Our room in the Sand’s building was nice and clean and for the most part quiet. We did have a noisy crew move in next door on our last night that were partying on their balcony. I would have preferred a balcony without a parking lot view and to be in the main building to cut down on the walking but you get what you pay for. I just had to make sure we were prepared with everything we needed before heading out to avoid the long walk back.
My only complaint is that staying at Kalahari ruined us for our 2 night stay at Wilderness. We so much preferred Kalahari that we felt ripped off at Wilderness where everything was more expensive and not as nice.
Kalahari is hands down the best value vacation in the Dells. So much to offer at a reasonable price. If we should ever be in area again Kalahari will be our destination.
