The walls are around the space behind Tamu Tamu Refreshments, ending at the Malimwengu Guest House façade.

Themed signs on the construction walls are from the Harambe Ministry of Public Works. This one says “Entrance Prohibited Thank you.”

The brown and black walls wrap into the nearby greenery, where they end.

The construction is likely general maintenance of the themed area.


Harambe is the fictional village of Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s Africa land. Here, guests can dine at Harambe Market, Tamu Tamu Refreshments, Zuri’s Sweet Shop, Dawa Bar, Tusker House Restaurant, Kusafiri Coffee Shop & Bakery, and the Harambe Fruit Market. Earlier this year, a new outdoor bar opened in Harambe Market in front of the building that used to serve ribs.

The Harambe Village Acrobats, Kora Tinga Tinga, and Tam Tam Drummers perform daily in Harambe.

Mombasa Marketplace offers authentic African imports like wine, apparel, art, crafts, instruments, and animal toys. Next door, Ziwandi Traders has more traditional Walt Disney World merchandise.

The land’s attractions are Festival of the Lion King and Kilimanjaro Safaris.
