Tamu Tamu Refreshments is a Quick Service dining location, which means Guests don’t need a dining reservation to eat at this restaurant. This is a popular snack location as one of the few Animal Kingdom dining locations offering Dole Whip, so you’ll want to avoid peak dining hours where the restaurant can gather large crowds.


This restaurant is one of the best in Africa to grab a snack and relax in the shade. Tamu Tamu Refreshments offers ample outside seating, much of it shaded to block the sun. This is a great location if you’re looking to take a break from your busy park day. Since Tamu Tamu is located at the entrance to Africa, it offers beautiful views of Animal Kingdom’s waterway and the Tree of Life.

About Megan Losey

As a Disney foodie, I love writing about Disney food and snacks. Some of my favorites are the Carrot Cake Cookie from Trolley Car Cafe, the Mickey Beignets from Port Orleans French Quarter, and the Apple Blossom from Port Orleans Riverside. When I'm visiting the parks, you can find me on Main Street taking in the good vibe of Magic Kingdom or relaxing with a drink at the Polynesian watching the fireworks from the beach. As a previous Cast Member, I will always have a special place in my heart for the Magic Kingdom, especially Main Street U.S.A.
