Who We Are
As a growing all-under-one-roof premium destination resort brand that focuses on being the industry leader in play, stay, eat and meet; everything we say and do at Kalahari Resorts & Conventions stems from our love of family and our goal of creating an oasis for spending time with those you care about most. Being family-owned, there is a conscious thought in developing multigenerational adventures that are unique. Being authentically-African themed, with the influence of Ubuntu (Swahili for togetherness) always top of mind, each year the ownership returns to the continent to source art and inspiration for each property.
We promise to deliver products and services beyond expectations.
We understand recruiting as a mission, with the individual as the most important element in the process. In mirroring the spirit of the brand, we promise authenticity, curiosity, honesty, timeliness, and follow-through.

Many of our associates have been given the tools to be a success and have built careers. Sixty-one percent of our leadership team has been promoted into their roles. As an employer-of-choice, we’ve held on to A-players that seek responsibility and want to learn.
Each day, from intern to executive, we’re empowered to push the boundaries of hospitality through positively affecting the guest experience in a for-profit environment.
