The breakfast buffet is really good; tons of options for all age range and tastes; from simple cereal to fresh carved sirloin. We had some really picky eaters with us and even they found things to enjoy at this breakfast buffet.

We ate here on Saturday night. Plenty of food choices made the kids happy. Beef carver went a little chinsy on the prime rib cut, but overall the meal was good. A little pricey, but that is to be expected if you are eating on resort property.

As "All you care to enjoy" places go, this restaurant is really good! There's a lot of atypical choices for adults and kids alike. We have done the breakfast and dinner services, and have really enjoyed them both equally. I think this is one of my favorite things about this water park.

3 adults, 2 kids, dinner on a Sunday night and breakfast on Monday... the food was amazing for a buffet. It had flavor, temperatures were maintained (especially for sensitive stomachs), the variety was extensive to include a kids buffet section tailored to them. I personally ate so much Monday morning that I didn't eat the rest of the day. I... More

We come to Kalahari every October and definitely look forward to the delicious breakfast buffet at the Great Karoo Marketplace. Each year I find a new an interesting menu item( Bruschetta eggs Benedict - yumm!) This is just one more reason to love Kalahari !

We went for the breakfast buffet and there was something for everyone. Huge selection of hot items including a nice carving station. Great selection of fruit and pastries. Even hot and cold cereal. All drinks included ( non-alchoholic) and you can even get refills on the juices. Very good coffee also.

We've eaten here both times we stayed at Kalahari. It's not cheap, but the food is amazing. The short ribs are calling my name months later. Ha. The kid's buffet is fun, too. Lots of choices to make the kids happy and its lower so they can reach. Top it off with fun mini- desserts. Delicious! This restaurant is also... More
