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.

Company Mission

We promise to deliver products and services beyond expectations.

Recruiting Vision

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.  Whether a current opening exists or not, relationship building is critical to the success of our company.

Team Characteristics

Kalahari Resorts & Conventions is a team of enthusiastically-empowered and loyal hospitality experts with the combined passion of flawlessly executing the creation of family time and world class conventions.

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.  Questioning prior policy and strategy is routine, and each associate is required to not only be attentive to detail, but to dream and be curious about what could be.

Synergy, collaboration and the willingness to take risk is at the heart of our culture.  We must continually embrace change, while remembering that welcoming each guest is what brought our brand to the forefront.
