|At A Glance
||One of the main (and original)
areas of Disney's Animal Kingdom, Africa is home to the Harambe
Village and the Kilimanjaro Safari.
Africa is the largest portion of the Animal Kingdom, and covering
110 acres of land is larger than the entire Magic Kingdom park.
Africa boasts replicas of everything from lush jungles to grassy
flatlands to a thriving African port town in a larger than life
representation of the African continent.
Africa packs tons of things to do into a small world. The Harambe
Village (Harambe is Swahili, meaning "coming together") is decorated
to resemble an African port, with artifacts, artwork, designs,
colors, fabrics, latticework and architecture taken from towns
all the way up and down the coast of the Continent.
Thirteen Zulu craftsman from Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa were
brought over by Disney to create the thatched roofs throughout
Africa including the Harambe Village Marketplace.
Africa's attractions include the Kilimanjaro Safari, the Wildlife
Express to Conservation Station, Harambe Village itself, The Pangani
Falls Exploration Trail (formerly Gorilla Falls) and a wide range
of places to buy souvenirs and in which to dine on authentic African
There is also usually a range of street entertainment, featuring
from the African continent telling stories and performing authentic
African music, particularly in the Harambe area of Africa.
