We loved the Kalahari. We've done other waterpark resorts, but the Kalahari will be hard to beat. The waterpark is HUGE (and we were there while construction was going on and some things were closed). So many options for our kids (age 1 to 6) in the same area. I really liked having one main waterpark compared to several smaller... More

We just stayed at the resort Sept. 22nd & 23rd and was a little disappointed in our room. There was no screen door to our patio so flies would come in our room. Called to have it looked at and no one came. Also the room was not cleaned completely. My young children found an old candy nerds box between... More

While we were aware prior to arriving that several of the indoor water rides would be closed for maintanence and other options were available to fill our time...we were not prepared for the really cool things they gave us to do in the Dells for free. The property was beautiful and my children still enjoyed the water rides but we... More

So great to hear our enhancements didn't negatively impact your stay! That's awesome. Love hearing the kiddos had a blast. Likewise, so happy you were able to take advantage of our added value within the Indoor Theme Park and Timbavati Wildlife Park. Such a blast! Can't wait to see the family again soon on a impromptu adventure! More

So what can I say. This place isn't cheap. Even in the offseason it's 200 a night. We came up for my daughters bday. We had no issue with the room it was nice enough I guess. However the indoor pool was quiet cold. It was early November but come on its indoor turn on the heat. It was also... More

We stayed in a 3 bedroom suite and had a great time. It was comfortable and the kitchen fully equipped. The water park was amazing, especially since it was empty. I guess we came at the right time. No lines and plenty to do. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

Our second floor room was of good size with two queen beds, however, the view was that of a flat/cement "wall," which was the wall to the outside of the water park... construction commenced in this area at approximately 5:00 a.m.!! Upon entering, the room smelled clean, the carpet looked clean and appeared like-new... however, like in most motels, dust... More

Nice clean HUGE property!!! Very helpful staff! I really enjoyed viewing the art work throughout the resort. We were surprised with an upgraded room upon arrival. Much appreciated!!! Very comfy bed! The only con was the high prices of the food at the restaurants on the property. We really enjoyed our one night stay and will come back again.
