If you are visiting Animal Kingdom after sundown, be sure to catch the Harambe Wildlife Parti. This safari after-party fills Harambe, which is an African village located within Disney’s Animal Kingdom park, featuring a beautiful theatre district and a hopping marketplace. Busy during the day with local street musicians and entertainment, at night, it’s time to get ready for a parti!

The Pros & Cons of Staying at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort

Late afternoon, the lively street festival kicks off with Afro-Pop musicians, the Burudika Band, take to the stage in Harambe’s Old Square. They perform music popular in Africa, so clap your hands and dance along! 

As you pass the main stage and walk into the marketplace, there’s more exotic entertainment including:

  • Karibu Sisters
    Resembling regal African cranes, these three women add to the rhythm of Harambe Marketplace through elegant dance, acapella songs, and acoustic renditions of African party music.
  • Harambe Village Acrobats
    Wearing costumes of grass, beads, bells and feathers set against a mosaic of African prints, this troupe of skilled performers move with the synchronicity of circus performers as they drum, dance, tumble and climb into man-made pyramids and break away into spinning, tumbling towers.

This free parti is included with the cost of park tickets, and you know you’re all about free, since those tickets were pricey enough.
