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.

Fantastic breakfast and dinner buffet!!! A bit pricey but worth it. Lots to choose from. We had some picky eaters with us and they found plenty to fill their plates.

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

Apparently, even in summer, only open for dinner, on Thursday through Sunday. We missed that window, and our child was not happy to miss it.
