Harambe Market

Deep in the heart of Africa, if we’re talking about Disney’s Animal Kingdom, you’ll find Harambe Market.

This outdoor eatery is a favorite among visitors to the Africa section of Animal Kingdom.

Harambe Market

This is an open air market that has African-inspired foods. There are four locations to choose from but look closely as some windows serve the same menu. If that’s the case, pick the shortest line!

 

The four locations are Kitamu Grill, Famous Sausages, Chef Mwanga’s, and Wanjohi Refreshments.

What to Expect

This area is themed to be an colonial era train depot where fresh ingredients are delivered directly to the village by train. It’s all about theming at Walt Disney World! Animal Kingdom is one of the most extravagantly themed parks in all of Disney World, and Harambe Market fits right in. As you sit down to enjoy your meal, you wouldn’t think you were in Orlando, Florida!

 

In order to fit with the theme, the seating is outdoors. Many tables are shaded so you can escape the sun for a little while.

 

This area is quite popular so there can be long waits. Many simply quote our friends Timon and Pumba and say, “Hakuna Matata” and don’t worry about it, but it’s something to keep in mind.

 

If you’re looking for a quick service meal that’s not just burgers and fries, Harambe Market could be for you.

Lunch and Dinner

Harambe Market offers a unique menu compared to many quick service locations. Meals consist of grilled meats and fresh veggies.

 

The current menu for the market can be found here.

Extra Fun

Since this area can get very busy check out the mobile ordering option. Mobile Ordering is just another way that Disney keeps things Simple, Fun, and Magic.

 

Speaking of Simple, Fun, Magic, Dad wrote a good book with the same name. Check it out here.

Dad’s Bottom Line

Getting lost in the cultures of Animal Kingdom can add to your perfect vacation! The theming alone is worth checking out Harambe Market!
