I visited Kalahari motel and waterpark this last winter. I had a ton of fun with my grandsons and son. I enjoyed this waterpark in February and can hardly wait to visit again.

We had so much fun with our young teens and rest of the family. We can't wait to do it again. Room was clean and quiet. Water park was perfect for our age of family.
