The Watering hole is a location in the Pride Lands. It is one of the main sources of water in the kingdom.

Physical Attributes

Much like the water hole from the original film, the watering hole is situated in the center of the savanna, with a sparse grove of trees on its fringe. At the edge of the hole, the grasslands give way to sand, rocks, and stunt vegetation.
