Chakula Plains is a wide expanse of savanna grass, cut down the middle by a dirt trail. Acacia trees, rocks, and shrubs intermittently dot the landscape.
Chakula Plains is mentioned by Beshte, who rushes up to the Lion Guard with news that Janja has been seen eyeing a herd of zebras grazing at Chakula Plains. The Lion Guard rushes to the rescue, but Janja and his cronies, Cheezi and Chungu, trap them in a ravine before they can reach the plains.
Just in time, Ono arrives and warns the zebras to run. Janja stares after the herd, horrified, and Kion uses the Roar of the Elders to break his team free. The powerful blast sends Janja and his minions flying across the plains, and they immediately scurry off into the Outlands.
