Information

The Utamu Tree is a location in the Pride Lands.

Appearance 

The utamu tree sits on the edge of a rocky cliff and the Utamu grubs live inside the tree. It appears to be dead with twisted branches. Bunga goes to this tree to catch the sweet grubs called Utamu. He wants to offer them as a present to his two uncles, Timon and Pumbaa.

Bunga falls

When Bunga first met Timon and Pumbaa, Timon asked the honey badger to climb the dead tree and get some utamu grubs. As Bunga climbed the tree, the pair compliment on his foolish bravery, giving Bunga his name, and making them his uncles.

When Bunga returns to the tree with Kion, Beshte and Ono, he climbs it once again to obtain some utamu (with Beshte supporting the trunk and Ono holding the branch). Unfortunately, the tree finally snaps, rendering Bunga unable to get the grubs. Despite being saved by Beshte, disappointment hits the honey badger hard until he later discovers that the grubs had landed by Timon and Pumbaa below.
