The Disney Parks Blog posted an update that revealed photos of the new Harambe Marketplace area. The area is built around a Colonial-era train depot and includes a 1960s era water tower. The marketplace is a town center where guests from around the world gather before going out on Safari. The dining offeringings are a series of small stands that sell the sort of food that would be available in a street market in Africa.
- Kitamu Grill – skewered chicken and a kabob flatbread sandwich
- Famous Sausages – a corn dog, South African sausage (boerewors)
- Chef Mwanga's – spice-rubbed karubi rib with green papaya-carrot slaw
- Wanjohi Refreshments – beverages including six South African wines, Safari Amber Lager, Orlando Brewing I-4 IPA, red sangria with Van der Hum tangerine liqueur from South Africa, The Starr of Harambe, a frozen drink with Starr African rum with mango puree in a souvenir mug, non alcoholic tangerine lemonade, fountain beverages, Sparberry from Zimbabwe and Bibo from South Africa
The new market will also included shaded tables and merchandise shops. The new area is expected to open in late May.
5/1 Update: The new area is expected to open on May 22, 2015.
