The Termite Mounds are dry and desolate, with the craggy grounds cracking at various points. There are large, hollow rock structures and termite mounds scattered all around, and the bony remains of dead animals can be seen.
When Zira tries to force Kion into joining her and her pride, Jasiri and the Lion Guard arrive to defend Kion. After doing so, Kion uses the Roar of the Elders to blast all of the Outsiders (except for her son, Kovu) far away from Zira's Den, and into the Termite Mounds, banishing them from their former home.
After they land, Nuka questions upon their location, and Zira irritably explains that they are at their new home.
