Beat the Heat This Summer in Ohio With Kalahari Resorts Summer Splash Celebration

Unique African-Inspired Activities Ensure Family Fun All Season-Long

SANDUSKY, OH--(Marketwired - June 07, 2013) -  Summer has arrived in Sandusky and Kalahari Resorts, an authentically African themed waterpark and resort, is commemorating the season with the Summer Splash -- a one world celebration of African music, food and art. The Summer Splash includes a series of family events and daily activities designed to entertain, educate and provide guests with a richer appreciation for the African continent.

Now through Labor Day, Kalahari guests can experience the joy and spirit of this foreign land with activities including: safari animal interactions with exotic wildlife and elephant encounters, African mask making, kite flying, a chef's harvest featuring the enticing foods of Africa; limbo contests, dance competitions, music jams with distinct African rhythm, Kalahari character visits and more!

"The Kalahari Resorts waterpark concept was inspired by our family's annual trips to Africa and our unique experiences with the continent's land, culture and customs," said Travis Nelson, spokesperson for Kalahari Resorts. "The Summer Splash is our family's way of sharing this worlds-away experience and celebrating the spirit of Ubuntu -- an African belief that we are all interconnected and part of one world. These activities will provide our guests with experiences they can only find at Kalahari Resorts."
