A Lion, Elephant, African Buffalo, Giraffe and a Meerkat, Kalahari Resorts

Resorts and Conventions

The Kalahari Resort & Convention Center in Wisconsin
in Dells, Wisconsin was America's largest indoor water park, until 2005 when it was surpassed by its sister resort in Sandusky, Ohio.
Kalahari's newest Resort and Convention Center in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania recently took this title in 2015 giving Kalahari the title of the World's Coolest Waterparks according to Conde Nast.

The sender writes:
We are enjoying our little vacation at the Kalahari Resort.  The kids are having so much fun!  We are attending the Autism Society of Wisconsin Conference. We saw a postcard, and thought of you!

This postcard features a Lion, Elephant, African Buffalo, Giraffe and a Meerkat and is from 2017.

The Kalahari Resorts and Conventions is named after the Kalahari Desert in southern Africa, hence the African theme at all the resorts. The lobbies have artificial fountains, trees, and animals that have been imported from local markets and shops in Africa.
