Later, having found a solution, the Lion Guard leads the herds through the Back Lands, where they are introduced to Dhahabu. The zebra welcomes them into her watering hole, on the condition that they frolic and romp. Vuruga Vuruga happily accepts her proposal and enjoys the water.

The Little Guy

Although everyone gets away from the herd, their stampeding causes a rockslide. Kion orders Fuli and Ono to calm down the buffaloes, while he, Beshte and Bunga assist Makuu's float. When a large rock collapses onto the tail of a crocodile, Makuu swiftly removes the rock to save him but is hit by another falling rock, injuring his foreleg. With the herd calmed down, Makuu comments that his float is safe.

Vuruga Vuruga serves as the leader of the herd. She is gracious to Kiara and is also very understanding. She appreciates an appropriate appearance. However, she is not above malice, as seen when siding with Twiga to set up Makuu. But she is also capable of forgiving those that she believes to have wronged her or her friends.
