Where the Spirit of Africa Comes Alive

You’ll find the spirit of Africa at Kalahari Resorts – from custom-crafted artwork on the convention center walls, furniture placed in guest rooms, recorded music from the streets of Cape Town echoing in the resorts and original crafts for guest souvenirs. It’s all part of Kalahari’s commitment to bring a beyond expectations experience.

Kalahari’s owners, the Nelson Family, have and inherent passion for entrepreneurship. That’s why we joined forces with an African Fair-Trade Organization. This partnership helps us to feature many artists throughout- not only as our decorations within the resort, but also the products guests purchase in our shopping experiences. Everything you see throughout our resorts is either sourced directly from Africa or made in our in-house manufacturing shop.

We are also a proud participant of the Ubuntu Institute, run by the Prince and Princess of Swaziland. The institute focuses on education, HIV/AIDS awareness, gender equality, empowerment of women, economic development, entrepreneurship and environmental sustainability. Within all of our resorts, you'll notice a group of talented, young team members from Africa. These inspiring tourism students come to the US to gain practical hospitality experience to take back home to strengthen their tourism industry. While here, they help educate our associates and guest on their cultures.

Kalahari is also very honored to partner with Clean the World, the largest global recycler of hotel amenities, to collect and recycle resort soaps, shampoos, conditioners, lotions and gels. We’ve diverted hundreds of thousands of these soaps from landfills to be recycled and given to people all over the world.

With that in mind, we believe the only way to bring the best of Africa back home to you within our resort, is to go out and get it.

One World – my humanity is tied to yours. Africa is full of inspiration. It’s why we return time and time again. We want you to share in our One World journey now and every time you us. We are all interconnected. It’s the chance to be a part of one beat, one heart, and one world.
