We're a family of four with two children (ages 6 and 3) who visited the African-themed Kalahari over winter vacation with some friends from Chicago. Kalahari is perfect for what it is - a vacation for families that will have kids' eyes popping out of their sockets. The expansive indoor water park, theme park, and bowling alley were fantastic, and...

Sounds like a whole lot of fun with the family friends over the holidays! I'm so thankful for you sharing your experience with us. While I love all the great memories made, I'm discouraged to hear about the lack of service and quality of food. Make no mistake, I will be connecting with our team now to ensure next time...

I have stayed at Kalahari Resort in Wisconsin Dells many times and thankfully is consistently very good. We have a 10 year old daughter and have taken her here at least once a year since she was 4. When she was little, we stayed in the main building in a Royal African Queen suite. We liked this suite because it...

I had gone with my family to Kalahari to spend the year end there and welcome the new year. Must say, had a wonderful experience. The staff was friendly, food was good, clean and spacious rooms, huge indoor waterpark, lots of activities for the kids, a indoor theme park and many more exciting things to do. Overall a wonderful experience.

Had a great time. The only thing that wasn't good was our meal at the Pub. All other restaurants were wonderful. Overall stay was great. We went as a family of 14. We really loved watching a man in the pool area giving (tossing) out pool towels. He put a smile on everyone's face.

Enjoyed a weekend away from the woes of winter...had a suite room...huge..beautiful room fireplace full kitchen (with everything you could need) nice balcony...beds were comfortable. Didn't have much interaction with staff. Waterpark/amusement park were both very fun...packed!! Waterpark could've been a few degrees warmer...but all in all a great get away!

We stay at the Kalahari every year (multiple times a year), but this year we had the best experience ever. The staff was very helpful and friendly, the room was terrific, and the overall experience was fantastic. The water was warmer than usual, which was so nice - I just hope it is a permanent change - because I have...

Nice hotel,very roomy... but the water park had the main slides down for construction. Over all stay was nice tho. Another down side was my puppy wasn't aloud had to pay for a puppy day care. Not to bad of a drive from home though.

Thank you Mari for paying us a visit! I'm sorry to hear about your disappointment of the slides. We do our best to ensure that all mandatory repairs are done in which a time minimally affects our patrons, but nonetheless, there is some cross-over at times for bigger enhancements. Hopefully you saw our notes highlighting this info ahead of time....

Thank you for a wonderful and memorable two days at the theme and water parks! Our family of four came from three different cities including Houston and we made many great memories at the water and theme parks just before Christmas.

All good with Kalahari. Pretty much everything was nice as planned and the staff made sure everything was great even when they had to work on the holiday. Buffet was great the pub just OK.

Sounds like you had a great time. Appreciate the feedback. I will pass along your thoughts to Mimi too. Likewise, that doesn't sound like any medics we have on premise, so let me do some digging on that to see who that was and the exact role. I agree, that would be slightly off-putting. We will get to the bottom...
