We have gone to Kalahari waterpark for the last eight years and there is nothing new on the inside. There is always at least one slide that is out of order as well when we go. My kids enjoy it though!

We stayed at Kalahari as an overnight getaway! Staff is awesome- our room was huge and of course the waterpark is amazing! The new outdoor addition is almost complete and that looks like it's going to be very cool as well! We love Kalahari!

I went with 4 friends and we all had a fantastic time. The gift shops and food are pricey, so if you're on a tight budget it's a good idea to bring your own food - we saved a ton of money that way. We...More

I would like to give it 4.5 stars. This is a very nice hotel and the water park is fantastic. The outdoor activities are great as well. Perfect for all ages but better suited for 10-16-year-olds. Rooms are very nice, the hotel is very clean...More

It's expensive, but I won a free night and the family was so excited! Love the reserve restaurant, the coffee shop with the delicious sandwiches, and of course the waterpark!

Place is very big and has everything you need for a mini vacation. Lots to do for the kids and for the adults. Bring your walking shoes.

Can I pay cash for the balance of my room and any extras or do I have to have a credit or debit card? I don't have a credit card and don't want my funds frozen on my debit card.

you can pay cash, but they will put a hold fee on the card on reservation. Just let them know how you need to pay and they will work with you.
