Details at the New Harambe Market | Disney's Animal Kingdom

When disembarking in Harambe village after a journey on Kilimanjaro Safari on our recent trip, I was surprised to discover a path where there had previously only been bushes and brush - there's an entire new corner of the Animal Kingdom back here...


This is a brand new counter service restaurant area - HARAMBE MARKET!


The Animal Kingdom had no shortage of funky signs and interesting, atmospheric details before, and now they've lots more in Harambe Market...

 

You might even find Mickey in some secret identities you never knew he had - like the coffee-drinking "Mister Mouse" or the Fichwa! Fellow. :) 


There are four new counter service windows with different foods to choose from.  Chef Mwanga's serves ribs while the Kitamu Grill offers a variety of meaty kabobs and skewers. There's also the Boerewors Sausages window...


Here's the menu board - I really want to try the Fried Sausage in Curried Corn Batter - it comes with roasted brocolli and tomato salad.  The African Milk Tart sounds interesting too - coconut custard in a chocolate tart.  I was a little disappointed that the African Milk Tart is the only dessert option available (though you could get it at all three counters) - now, however, they've added a Zuri's Sweets Shop which I can't wait to check out.


Adults can check out the Wanjohi Refreshment window for some drink options...


You can get a souvenir tumbler here and a variety of alcoholic drinks.  That African rum and mango "Starr of Harambe" does sound nice, although I wish they had a fruity non-alcoholic smoothie on the menu too.


The seating is all outdoors in the heat, sadly, although I do like the mismatched chairs and tables, and there is plenty of shade...


I always feel like you need an extra stomach or two for a Disney vacation - we had just eaten when we passed through the Harambe Market, so we didn't order anything.  I did, however, really enjoy wandering and taking in the theming and all the details...


I wish the Hemingwey Bookshop was a real place - "Come to for a good read!"

 

Evil spirits, backaches, bad debts?  Dr. Jomo the herbalist will cure basically any ailment you have!  I love all the advertisements for fictional local businesses.


There are also wise words of advice...


...and some hopeful promises for the future. :)

Have you visited the new Harambe Market yet?
