Not everyone can take two weeks off for a trip to Africa, but if you’re feeling like you need a change of pace without the long trip, visit Kalahari Resort in the Pocono Mountains. This resort has America’s largest indoor water park in addition to one of the state’s top three largest convention centers, as well as a full-service hotel, spa and multitude of restaurants ranging from a buffet and coffee shop to upscale comfort food. The spirit of Africa is everywhere—from the décor down to every last detail, so it’s no wonder they offer an African spin on this Cuban cocktail.
