Animal Kingdom – Harambe Market Now Open at Disney Theme Park
Have you ever wanted to experience the delicious food of Africa? Sample South African wines or their signature sangria? Well now you can and you don’t have to travel to across the world to do so.
Animal Kingdom brings you Harambe Market, a bustling marketplace alive with the aromas and flavors of African street foods, adds an exciting new dimension to the expanded Harambe Village experience at Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park in Walt Disney World® Resort, Orlando, Florida.
Built around a Colonial-era train depot design complete with a 1960s water tower, Harambe Market at Animal Kingdom invites Guests to sample true flavors of Africa before or after they embark on Kilimanjaro Safaris®. The following four themed shops offer fresh meals, snacks and beverages like those found in an African street market:
- Kitamu Grill featuring skewered chicken and kebab flatbread sandwich.
- Famous Sausages showcasing a corndog made with a South African boerewors sausage dipped in curry-infused corn batter.
- Chef Mwanga’s spice-rubbed Karubi Rib paired with green papaya-carrot slaw.
- Wanjohi Refreshments quenches thirsts with craft draft beers, South African wines by the glass, sangria, frozen drinks, non-alcoholic tangerine lemonade and fountain beverages.
Harambe Market at Animal Kingdom Orlando offers shaded tables for dining, and area shops sell wares from Africa. And from the marketplace, Guests can enjoy direct access to Kilimanjaro Safaris, the Wildlife Express train to Rafiki’s Planet Watch and a path to Asia attractions, including Expedition Everest®. While you are there, don’t forget to experience Dinosaur, ride the Kali RIver Rapids (you are sure to get soaked) and if your stomach can handle it, take a spin on Primeval Whirl. Disney’s Animal Kingdom Rides are considered among the best in the world!
