Unlike the previous reviewer we were here for the first time. Maybe that's why we liked it. We bought a Family Getaway Package and it was a great value. We liked both the indoor and the outdoor water parks. And surprisingly, indoor water park seems to be even better than outdoor. That's why we are planning to visit this resort...

This is the third year we have come here for a family reunion. This place is great. We all get to split up throughout the day but still be close enough for lunch and swimming together. Definitely a great time.

Hi Celine. I am glad to hear you had a blast with us. I hope you enjoyed your time exploring through our waterparks. On your next visit, you'll have to make a stroll down to our Indoor Theme Park for a few hours. The Go Karts are my favorite ride there! Thanks again for the review. Take care!

We stayed only one night but by the end we were ready to go! Upon arrival our room had been "complimentary upgraded" without notice. We waited with tired kids for our original room to be available again. My fiancé was insulted by a "lifeguard "for looking over 100 lbs when she isn't, and wasn't allowed to bring my 2year old...

My family and I stayed at kalahari Monday through Friday and my kids didn't want to leave. We had a blast at both the indoor and outdoor waterpark, very clean, and lots of lifeguards patrolling and monitoring the rides. Good food at all the places we ate at. The sweet hut was of course the favorite. We enjoyed the complimentary...

We have been vacationing at the Kalahari for many years now, so many that I have lost count, and I must say that this was the first year we were ever disappointed. Our disappointment started at check in at The Sands Building. Rather than taking care of me immediately as I was the next and only remaining guest in line,...

This was our second time back and we stayed in the Royal African Queen Suite. Very spacious and the two bedrooms were great for our family.
