Animal Kingdom’s New Harambe
Today’s photo is a shot of the new part of Harambe that recently opened at Disney’s Animal Kingdom to accommodate the movement of the Festival of the Lion King show.
This area was built for two purposes: to finally have the Festival of the Lion King in the Africa section of the park, and to also make way for the significant Avatar themed land that is opening all the way in 2017. When I got the chance to check this new part of Harambe out, I was so happy to see many of the great details that make Harambe special present. Great street signs, weathered details, and even boats parked on the water! It’s really cool that the theater, which is the yellowish building in the background, doesn’t even stick out like a theater. From a photographic standpoint, this was taken from the bridge from Discovery Island to Harambe. The best time of day to take this photo is going to be either early in the morning, or around sunset and into the evening. During the middle of the day, the light will be rather harsh and make it difficult to get a nice exposure.
