Tazama has grayish, slightly brown fur, with light gray paws, underbelly, and muzzle. Her nose is pink and pointed, and she has bright greenish-blue eyes, gray eye rims and black eyebrows. She has little brown spots under her eyes and on the bridge of her snout. The ear rims along the top of her ears are dark brown, with lighter brown rims along the sides, and her inner ears are - unlike most lions - the same shade of grey as her main fur colour.
Tazama doesn’t seem to fight when the Guard is in battle, usually staying back in order to guide her friends so they don’t end up in serious danger. She is cunning, often using situations to her advantage, such as when she chooses very dark caverns for her trial against Anga as she can see in the dark. She is a good team player, always supporting and assisting her teammates.
Kion's Guard, Janja's Clan, Jasiri's Clan, Azaad, and Mzingo's Parliament confront Vitani's Guard. Tazama is instructed to keep watch, and she advises Kasi to climb a tree to escape Fuli. She is then attacked by Mzingo and his vultures and the fighting goes on until Kovu and Kiara intervene. The rest of Vitani's Lion Guard compete against Kion's Lion Guard to see who is the better Lion Guard. Tazama competes against Anga to see who can find Laini in the dark first. This works to Tazama's advantage, as Anga cannot see in darkness, and the lioness prevails. Soon, Kion gives up his role and joins the Night Pride, allowing Vitani to become the new leader of the new Lion Guard.
Tazama is the last new character to make a debut in Season 3 and the season finale.
