Hapana! Lake Kiziwa! It's too full. The water's pouring out!

Ono, Bunga the Wise

Lake Kiziwa is a large lake in The Lion Guard universe.


Lake Kiziwa is a large lake held back by a set of strong, sturdy boulders.


Bunga the Wise

The lake floods after a storm. Bunga gets the idea of blocking it with stones, and other Pride Landers approve. When a tiny leak occurs, he fixes it by placing a stick in it, still certain it's safe. The rest of the Lion Guard isn't as certain, but they comply.

Later, the dam breaks, causing the floodwater to spread rapidly throughout the Pride Lands as the Pride Landers flee in terror. After Ono accidentally leads them into a dead end in the canyon as the Lion Guard and several other animals escape, Kion eventually uses the Roar of the Elders to stop the water from moving any further.

As a direct result of the Roar, the waters move back and eventually fall out over a cliff, creating a new watering hole.

The Kilio Valley Fire

Ma Tembo and most of her herd pass through Lake Kiziwa to pick up some water, in order to stop a fire in Ndefu Grove.
