After reading the reviews and comparing all of the different parks, we settled on this one. It was great. We took our 5 yr old, and he had a blast. Very nice area for smaller children (indoors and out). It was a short walk from out room, but nothing bad at all. We did not eat anywhere on property, so... More

We stayed for two days last week as a small last minute family getaway before school starts for our son. The hotel room met our expectations and the staff was very friendly. We were also able to check in as soon as we got there (which made it even better). However, the food is over priced and didn't have much... More

We had a 2 night stay during the week at the end of August, good timing as some schools had already started so the hotel was not crowded. We were upgraded to a spacious 2 bedroom suite at no charge. We enjoy the Kalahari because it's a bit more manageable than the Wilderness and it's nice for smaller children. I... More

When staying again, I encourage you to... More

Family oriented resort with large convention facilities. Or a destination convention location with large water park resort. However you want to describe this place it is great fun for kids of all ages. Be prepared for large noisy crowds and expensive carnival quality food and drink.

Hello Trippies I spent 8 days with my family at the Kalahari Resort so my review is an accurate sampling of the resort. First let me say the Kalahari as a "property" is quite a great place. With that said the real weakness is cleanliness and poor staff. In 8 days we counted only 4 truly good kind staff. All... More

I took my 9 year old daughter, her friend and my parents to Kalahari for one night and two days of water slides. The water slides were fantastic, the "arcade" with rides, etc. was fun for the kids (if over priced) and everyone had a very good time. My only complaints are the following: first, the walls in the hotel... More

We just stayed in the Waterside cabins which is about 3 miles from the resort but run by the resort. Lake Delton is literally your back yard. Impeccably clean. There aren't many cabins so it's like our own little community for the week. A little beach, grills and a fire pit. We couldn't of been happier. Best part is not... More
