With the opening of the Harambe Theatre district and the Africa Marketplace, Harambe Village will double in size when complete. And this is just the beginning!

In addition to the work in Africa, construction is underway on a new table service restaurant on Discovery Island. The restaurant will share dining space with Pizzafari, celebrating the art of traveling with menu items representing destinations that Inspired the creation of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park.
