UWG Super-Discounted Room Rates

The following rates are valid Sunday, May 20th through Friday, May 25th, 2018 (Sunday-Thursday nights). You must make your reservation prior to April 20, 2018 to be eligible for these rates. Also, be aware that we only have a limited number of rooms available to our group at the discounted rate and it’s possible that they can sell out, for one or more of the conference nights, prior to the April 20th deadline. So, the earlier you make your reservations, the better chance you’ll have of getting the discounted rate for your entire stay. In the past, it’s been possible to cancel or change your reservation up to a couple days prior to your arrival for a small fee. (Check with the Kalahari when you make your reservations about this year’s policy.)

Be aware that while tax will be added to the room rates below, you should not be charged any additional resort fees (if you’re able to book a room at our discounted rate). There has been some confusion about this in the past on the part of some of the Kalahari staff so make sure that you double check this when making your reservation.
