Mount Kilimanjaro is a mountain in the Pride Lands.


The Lion King

Mount Kilimanjaro is only seen once in the first film during the "Circle of Life" sequence, when a herd of elephants walk past en route to the presentation of Simba.

The Lion King's Timon & Pumbaa

Mount Kilimanjaro is expanded in the episode "To Kilimanjaro Bird." A mother eagle built a nest on the mountain for herself and her son Baby Earl, making it their home. When she gets mad at Timon for stealing Baby Earl's bowl of grubs, Mother Eagle makes him and Pumbaa babysit her son while she flies to the lowlands to find more bugs. Mount Kilimanjaro can be seen in some other episodes of the series.

The Lion King II: Simba's Pride

It is seen during the opening sequence of "He Lives In You," and is later mentioned in the song "Upendi."


  • The mountain's peak changes. In the opening sequences of the films, the mountaintop is flat, but in "Upendi," the top is pointed until Rafiki removes it.
