Our first trip to the Kalahari for 3 nights in October with our 2 boys. Many things to do which kept us busy. Great variety of restaurants. We liked how the Waterpark is in one enclosed area, but really missed the large open feeling of the wave pool at a another resort. We purchased a family package which included breakfast,... More

We have stayed at the Kalahari 4 or 5 times. This visit was Oct 16-19, just 3 nights staying in the Sands section in a 3 bedroom unit which had 2 adjoining bedrooms and then a suite which included a dining room table, full kitchen, fireplace, balcony etc. It was probably a good 7 minute walk through an indoor skyway...

Stayed for a convention this time and once before. Both times I was not impressed with the rooms. On this last stay we had a bathtub as big and deep as a Jacuzzi tub but no jets.

We have stayed in other water park resorts in the Dells and the Kalahari has been by far the best! All staff were helpful, friendly, and very professional. Our adult son has special needs and staff were very kind, caring and respectful toward him. As a result, our stay was very fun and enjoyable. We will return in the future.
