We throughly enjoyed our visit at Kalahari Park for our family reunion. We've been to another indoor water park in the south, but it was small compared to all the activities offered in Sandusky. Check-in was seamless and all accommodations were neat and clean on the 4th floor (thanks Tammy)! Our entire family had a great time! There's something for... More

Prior to arriving, I reviewed the website to determine the activities available. The website is well designed and detailed enough to provide you with information necessary to decide which activities you will particpate. Resort accommodations: The Resort lobby is... More

This was my 8yr old son's first overnight vacation. He loved the indoor water park, said the chocolate at The Candy Hut was the best he ever had, and the pizza was excellent. His 74yr old grandmother came along and enjoyed herself as much as my son. I loved having a room at the resort to retreat to when my... More

I'm speechless, just awesome luxury. The housekeeper Mr. Erdis was SOOO helpful in so many ways of room services, directions, food,etc. I really appreciated his expertise. I could stay 365 days it's open, I didn't want to leave we even stayed an extra day. So peaceful @ night on the private patio, no mosquitos even @ 4am. The land scraping... More

The water park is a great time, other things however aren't. Every bathroom we used looked like it hadn't been cleaned all day. Also the bathrooms and especially the locker have a smooth and slick floors. The dresser in our room seemed to be falling apart as well.

Every time my family drives across country, my husband hates flying, we see the advertisements for the Kalahari resort. This time we decided to spend the night but I wish we had skipped it, it isn't worth the money. We made the reservation the same day, so maybe got a bad rate but I feel this place is the epitome...

Stayed overnight in the African Queen suite for my son's 13th birthday party. This room had 2 bedrooms with a total of 3 queen beds and in the living room there was a pullout couch queen sized bed. We had our own patio area and there was also 2 bathrooms in the suite. It was very nice! During our stay... More

Service in the cabana we rented in the indoor water park was poor. What a shame it was. We also experienced slow service in the restaurants as well. The ice cream was good. The room was nice but far from the action. The housekeeping was also sub par.

We were in search of a place for our family to meet for a few days. Grandchildren aged 3 to 16 to entertain. Wanted to stay in one building so that we could eat together, visit, and sleep comfortably. The 5 bedroom Ny Um Ba house was a good choice. It is beautifully decorated, roomy, and comfortable. We were able... More

Great time for young and old. There is so much to do at this resort, you can't finish it in a day. Slides for real little kids as well as for older kids and adults. The outdoor pool is large with a great kiddie pool. It may not be as large as other outdoor water parks but it is unsurpassed... More
