Designed to create a themed experience, rooms are rich in African ambiance, from framed art and headboards with inlaid African prints to wall sconces with animal "tusk" accents.

Room options range from Desert and Nomad rooms (515 square feet, accommodate six) in the Resort North and South wings to Hut (358 square feet, maximum four persons) and Lodge (663 square-feet; full kitchen; maximum four persons) rooms in the Sands condominium building. Combination Suites (1,021 square feet) combine one Lodge and one Hut room and sleep up to eight, while Village Suites (1,570 square feet) combine one Lodge room and two Hut rooms, feature a total of three bathrooms and three patios and sleep up to 12.

Additional options for larger families include Two Room Family Suites, located closest to the indoor water park, and African Queen Suites, both of which accommodate up to eight. Two Room Family Suites feature two full bathrooms versus 1.5 bathrooms in the African Queen Suites, while African Queen Suites offer the added bonus of a shared living room.

All accommodations feature free high-speed wireless Internet service, a refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker and in-room safe and complimentary access for each registered guest to the Fitness Center, Tree Top dry Play Area and the indoor and outdoor water parks. Rollaway beds, cribs and Pack 'n Plays are available at an additional nightly fee.

One important detail to note is that while rooms may accommodate a total of six or eight guests or more, resort pricing is often calculated for a lower occupancy. When sleeper sofas are used, there is an added charge per guest per night. Children under two stay and play for free.

With regard to room location, seasonality is key. In summertime, Lodge and Hut rooms in the Sands wings, as well as their suite combinations, offer convenient access to the outdoor water park, as well as easy access to the indoor water park via an outdoor pool deck entrance. You can request an outdoor pool view (no extra charge), but a specific outlook is not guaranteed.

In winter, Nomad and Desert rooms in the Resort South Wing afford easy access to the indoor water park, as do Two-Room Family Suites and African Queen Suites, while rooms in the Resort North Wing and Sands buildings can be a good distance away, but are convenient to the convention center, Fitness Center and Spa Kalahari.
