A new eatery has opened in Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park, Harambe Market. Animal Kingdom has long suffered at the lack of quality lunch restaurants. The addition of Yak & Yeti Local Food Cafes a few years ago was a good addition. Now if Disney could just do something about Pizzafari.

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.
