Good places to take young kids or anyone who is picky since they have a lot of options. Also convenient if you’re already staying at the Kalahari. It is pricy, but worth it if you like buffets

We were already staying at Kalahari and playing at the water park, so we ended up at the Great Karoo out of convenience. They have a little buffet spread with corn dogs and Mac and cheese at kid height that was nice. The rest of...More

What a great breakfast buffet! Nice variety, friendly, polite and professional staff. I think there is something for everyone from vegetarians to meat lovers. Our entire family really enjoyed the meal. Thank you to all hard working employees to make our experience so pleasant!

I wanted to love this breakfast, because it looks amazing. Great variety of food from crepes, pancakes, waffles, to many varieties of eggs (including omelette station) and even carved ham and steak. My only issue was that because it was a slow morning (Friday) the...More

The price is comparable to any higher end buffet. It is a tourist town so you have to expect that. We found the Breakfast buffet to be great. Enough selection and food was replaced often enough that nothing was dried out. My husband raved about...More

Had gone there several times over the years for both the brunch buffet and dinner buffet, so we thought we'd give it another try. The word "brunch" in this case is highly deceiving. It is 90% breakfast food. The non-breakfast items are carved ham, turkey...More

It is expensive per person. I think its is around $19.99. Kids are cheaper yes, but the bill is expensive. Great food and service! This year we didn't have a waitress that was an exchange student and she was way better.
