Kalahari Resorts & Conventions

For more than a decade, Kalahari Resorts and Conventions has provided unparalleled hospitality in a vacation-style setting. With a sales and catering team that totals more than 400 years of experience, we’ve hosted for the best event planners in America and have a proven ability to consistently increase meeting attendance by more than 20 percent.

Kalahari offers a unique all-under-one-roof experience so guests can maximize their time on-site. With top-notch meeting space, delicious dining options, award winning indoor/outdoor attractions, retail shopping, Spa Kalahari and more.

Kalahari’s unique differentiator is that the resorts are inspired by the culture, the art and the natural beauty of Africa; this is evident the moment you step foot into our resort and convention center. In November of 2014, the Nelson family and team returned to Africa to once again be inspired. Traveling 24,752 miles, in six countries over 23 days, their journey and inspiration of art, culture and beauty is shared with you and your guests every time you visit Kalahari Resorts and Conventions.
