Kalahari is the best place to stay in the Wisconsin Dells area. Roomy and clean rooms with a variety of accomodations for couples or families. Excellent staff, very friendly and efficient at check in. We stayed with another couple and our adult children on a golf, relaxation weekend. The on site restaurants offer a nice variety of food choices and...

Kalahari is a great place for family and has fun things to do for all ages! Everything is "top notch" The waterpark was fun and the indoor theme park was fun with a great value during our stay. The rooms are super clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. You can tell the owner is truly "hands on" and...

Love hearing that you've been to both Kalahari's! That's awesome. I can say that it's truly appreciated. We are a family run business and work side by side with ownership daily. We all love what we do and who we do it for! Thank you so much for taking a moment to review us! Can't wait to see you again...

We had a hut room and it was great. Housekeeping was a little slow but the resort was very busy. Check-in was a little aggravating. Got there a little early (11) and did not get checked in until around 5. Other than that everything was good. It's a huge place with a lot to see and do!

While I'm sorry to hear that we weren't able to get you into your room until 5, I am thrilled to hear that everyone had a blast! Hopefully you had the chance to try everything around, from the Theme Park, to the indoor and outdoor waterpark all the way over to Timbavti Wildlife Park and Tommy Bartlett Show! We just...

This is the second time in two years that my friend and I chose Kalahari for our getaway with the kids. We do strategically plan it for the down time when most families are back into the school year so I can't attest to the crowded in-season. Both times we stayed in the Royal African Suite, which is in the...

This was not our first trip to this resort. It holds 5 star sentimental value for us. This visit we noticed many changes, and not all for the good. We did enjoy it; most likely because sentiment carried us through but it remains to be seen if we will return again. I will start with the best. There is something...

We are certainly appreciative of your patronage over the years. Thank you so much for taking a moment to share your thoughts and recent experience.

We enjoyed our 2 night stay at Kalahari. Given the many things to do there, we wish we had stayed an extra night. Our Hut room, in the Sands building, was clean, in the theme of the resort, spacious and comfortable. The balcony was nice as well. It also was relatively quiet which was nice. The water parks were fantastic...

We're so thrilled that your family including your 7 year old daughter had a blast with us. I know we loved having everyone! Hopefully next time we can see you for the 2 nights. I'm sorry to hear that we were sold out of resort side rooms. In the summer, our resort does stay very busy and typically the resort...

The outdoor park is below average for the Dells but the indoor park is great! Our room was just a hotel room but it was excellent - clean and quiet. The safari surfrider was a fav. Food prices at Kalahari are very high. Parking is also a bit challenging. We will return.

Short and sweet, right to the point. Love it. Thank you so much for sharing. Certainly our pleasure to have you and we can't wait to see you again! Thank you so much for taking the time to share you experience. Maybe a winter trip to escape the winter blues is in the future. See you soon!

My husband and I went there to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. The service was incredible, the price was reasonable, and everyone seemed to wear a smile! Hopefully, we'll stay here again in the not so far off future!

Just returned from a wedding at the Kalahari's Trappers Turn last night. I don't even know where to begin with this review! I was a bit apprehensive about booking a room at this resort as another family member had an awful experience with them last winter. This resort has the rudest, most inconsiderate staff working there that you could ever...

My fiancé and I stayed at the Kalahari resort from August 24-26 with our extended family. When we arrived to the hotel, we were shocked to see how busy it was and were informed that the last week of August is generally the busiest week for the resort. Wish we would have known this!
