This area between Germany and China was once slated to contain a pavilion canvassing equatorial Africa, but that fell through for political reasons, so instead, we get a mushy catch-all for all things African. The Mdundo Kibanda store has some Kenyan carvings (such as adorable $12 pocket-size elephants and walking sticks for $67–$77), and you’ll find occasional storytelling sessions. Several days a week, a craftsman is on hand, whittling and carving wares—Kenyan-born Andrew Matiso has run this concession at Epcot since 1999. His wife Anna makes ravishing accessories from beads, and his colleague Joshua might also be here; these days, Matiso often works in the shop at Animal Kingdom Lodge.
