The hotel, water parks (both inside and outside), and theme parks were absolutely amazing! I highly recommend this resort for families who want to have FUN! Very affordable, and it's a one-stop shop...we didn't leave the resort for 3 days!!

I took my 13 yr old son and his 2 friends to Kalahari the first week in July and it was a great time! As anyone with teenagers know, it's a little hard to please them and find things that they like to do! Well that was not a problem here! There was never a dull moment here.. They all... More

The resort has a lot of activities that the kids enjoyed. I did have one major issue with the room that was handled very poorly by Kalahari management. We found bacteria growing on the ceiling of our bathroom. I approached the front desk and asked for a manager. I got a supervisor instead who I showed the photo to. I... More

We stayed at Kalahari in Wisconsin 4th of July weekend. We've made a family tradition of visiting Kalahari a few times of year with our children. I feel like the quality hotel is not what it used to be. There were cobwebs in our room and our nightstands (and everything on it) were covered in dust. There were washcloths left... More

As a first timer to the Dells, I was extremely excited to stay at Kalahari -- EVERYBODY says how great it is and I am super pleased to feel the same way. Right off the highway, so you are not in the heart of the dells. Some people may not like this but we found it great so we didn't... More

The waterparks are great. Big, well staffed, clean, never felt crowded. I would recommend spending the money on an outdoor cabana if you plan to use the outdoor waterpark. It's nice to have the shade, a central place to meet up, a comfy relaxing area, soft towels, ice water, a fridge, etc. I wouldn't bother for the indoor park. Concerns... More
