We stayed at Kalahari in a Combination Suite in the Sands Building for Easter weekend. The check-in process was painful as there was only one person trying to check everyone in by herself. There were plenty of carts to bring up our luggage. The room itself was perfect! It had plenty of space for 2 families - loved the separate...

Loved the water park and room. Have some other gripes though. We ate at the restaurant in the resort and paid $12 for the most pitiful taco salad on earth. I had to split my meal with my boyfriend so we didn't leave hungry. Later on I got a drink at the pool - which was weak and small -...

I believe I had the "Nomad" style room while at a business convetion this year. Not nearly as luxurious as the African Queen Suite I had last year for the same convention. Pretty basic room that does the job. Closer to the convention center than the African Queen Suite. Could not get the thermostat to adjust the temperature of the...

I go to Canada every May and I...

Our family, 2 boys ages 10 and 9, and us parents, had a non-stop fun filled spring break at the Kalahari! We really did it up this time and it was SO worth it! Stayed in a 2 bedroom suite with a hot tub- enough room for everyone , a dining room table for our Moose Jaw pizza and quick...

We stayed in the Resort for a Showstoppers dance competition. Kalahari has everything to put on a great show. Waterpark was a lot of fun and food was absolutely amazing. I highly recommend Great Karoo dinner buffet. My family reserved a 2 room family suit (regular not royal). The room has very bad location. It is on the ground floor...

We stayed at the Kalahari on the weekend of April 8-9. We only live about 45 minutes from the Dells so we don't typically stay when we play, but I had a gift card so I thought why not? Because I had the gift card I decided to get one of the nicer rooms - the Horizon Family Suite. This...

Nice place for mini vacation for families with young kids. Better than many of the other indoor theme park facilities in the area. Movie theatre, water park. Clean grounds. African theme is fun. Food is basic, but better than decent.
