Africa is a themed land at Disney's Animal Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. Set in the fictional east African port of Harambe, this area contains a number of animal exhibits.


The village is a namesake of the Harambe Wildlife Preserve, the fictional home of Africa's main attraction, Kilimanjaro Safaris. Guests climb aboard an open-sided safari vehicle for an expedition to see numerous African animals freely roam through acres of savanna, rivers, and rocky hills, including reticulated giraffes, hippos, African elephants, and lions. On the adjacent Pangani Forest Exploration Trail, visitors trek into the forest in search of the gorillas. Along the way, the guest goes on a nature walk through a verdant African valley filled with Nile hippos, birds, and fish.

According to its fictional backstory, Harambe was once part of a Dutch colony settled in 1420, but a peaceful revolution made Harambe self-governing in 1961. Today, Harambe is the starting point for tourists and students who want to observe Africa's animals in their natural habitat.
