WDWMagic.com has posted an aerial photo courtesy of Scott Keating that shows the extent of the land clearing in Africa. The details of this project are unknown, but the photo reveals an area of land larger than the current footprint of Harambe Village. The land clearing is between the Wildlife Express Train Station in Africa and the Flights of Wonder Stage in Asia. The speculation is that this will be a new walking path between Africa and Asia.
Update: Bwana Blog is reporting that this new area will be an open air marketplace that will serve as an alternative pathway into Africa.
