The Harambe marketplace, a new dining and drink stop that opened at Disney's Animal Kingdom in late May, features several open air shops that will offer a variety of rotating merchandise, all made to look like an authentic African village. The centerpiece will be four quick service windows that will serve a number of dishes inspired by different African regions. The area also comes with covered seating for more than 200 visitors.Kitamu Grill serves up skewered grilled chicken and a kabob flatbread sandwich. The nearby Famous Sausages window will feature a new take on the classic corn dog, with a South African sausage called a boerewors dipped in curry-infused corn batter. Chef Mwanga's serves spice-rubbed karubi ribs with green papaya-carrot slaw and Wanjohi Refreshments has wines, specialty cocktails, beers and non-alcoholic lemonades. — Sharon Kennedy Wynne, Times staff writer
