When Kopa, the son of Simba, went looking for his father, he found Boga resting beneath a clump of acacia trees with Babu, Leo, Mega, Ngawa, and Sabini. Leo asked the others if they had ever heard the story of how his great-grandfather had chased a herd of elephants, and Boga groaned, replying, "About a hundred times!"

Trivia

  • Boga's name means "pumpkin" in Swahili.[2]
  • Though Boga is pictured, it is unknown whether they are the cub behind the tree, the cub laughing on their back, or the lioness resting in the grass. All other members (save Babu and Sabini) are accounted for in the narrative.[1]
