The Kalahari staff was professional, flexible, and created a beautiful atmosphere for our wedding ceremony and reception. Claudiu, our Catering Manager, went above and beyond to make sure that we were happy with every single detail.
While they provided the standard décor, we brought in our own centerpieces and "extras" to fill the space - they were more than happy to do as much or as little for the setup as I wanted. They set up the entire reception space for us, with very minimal direction, and it was exactly what I had explained to Claudiu in our very first meeting. He was around all day checking in with me to make sure we were happy and to help keep the night on track. We were very lucky to get someone who was so invested in our day. Even after the wedding had concluded, we had a question on the final bill and he dug into it personally and got us the answers we needed.
On top of everything that the staff did for us, the Kalahari was the perfect location because we had quite a few out of town guests. They were able to make it into a mini vacation and enjoy the waterpark in their free time. Even the groom and I were able to get a couple waterpark days in, which was nice and relaxing before and after our big day. :)

Claudiu is the real MVP to deal with. He was always available to answer any question I threw at him. The staff at the event of our wedding was so pleasant to work with. They made our dream wedding come true, we would not have changed anything. Very accommodating, great food!

The Kalahari Resort in the Wisconsin Dells was the perfect place for our dream wedding! We had a destination wedding in the Wisconsin Dells. The Kalahari Resort staff were absolutely amazing to work with, and ensured that every detail of our wedding was perfect. We used the Kalahari Resort ballrooms for our ceremony and reception along with the Wisconsin Brew Pub for our rehearsal dinner. Our experience from start to finish with the Kalahari was great. Claudiu, the catering manager at the Kalahari Resort, personally made time to meet with us in person and promptly responded to numerous emails regarding wedding details from us and our vendors. He even stayed late to help with the rehearsal and wedding reception to ensure that our events were going well. We were able to use the ballroom that we had our ceremony for the rehearsal; which made things super easy for the wedding party. The Wisconsin Brew Pub's Bucky's Sky Box room was a great place for the rehearsal dinner. Everyone enjoyed the great food and atmosphere! The Kalahari Resort did a great job with the sheers that went around the ballrooms, and the layout for the reception had great flow. The Kalahari Resort catering team did a phenomenal job with the food! Every guest marveled about how great the food was, and the team was more than accommodating to our guests that had food allergies (which there were several). The Kalahari pastry made our wedding cake exactly how we asked, and accommodated a special flavor of filling and created special cakes for our guests with food allergies. The resort had wheelchairs available for our guests, and guests that needed assistance were met at the door with wheelchairs. The Kalahari resort truly went above and beyond for us and all of our wedding guests. We could not have asked for a better team to work with! You will certainly not be disappointed if you pick the Kalahari Resort in the Wisconsin Dells for your dream wedding location!
We've had the honor of shooting at Trappers Turn and at The Kalahari more than few times and the venue and prepping areas for the couples have always been very clean and bright. The staff has gone out of their way countless number of times for us as photographers, moving items, getting items and just being extremely helpful to us and the other vendors to ensure a perfect day and night for our couples.
I cannot express enough what an amazing job The Kalahari Resort and Trappers Turn Golf Club do. Their quality, professionalism and attention to detail are at the top in the industry. No matter who we are working with, they take great care in making sure everything is perfect for every event. As a vendor, I always have positive experiences with their staff from the servers and bartenders all the way up to the management! As big as they are, every customer still gets treated with great, old fashioned customer service from everyone that works there; including the owners! The staff act like owners and the owners act like staff ~ that act like owners! See how that works :-) Everyone knows they do a great job at the hotel and and water/theme parks, but I am always thrilled to recommend The Kalahari and Trappers Turn for any event; small, big or huge!
