Baobab Ball is a sport played by animals in the Pride Lands. It is a game played by Bunga and his best friend Kion.



Baobab Ball is a game in which a baobab fruit is passed between players. It can evolve into a competition of another nature, as Bunga and Kion are known to wrestle over the fruit on occasion rather than pass it back and forth.

Wrestling for the fruit

Baobab Ball is first introduced by Kion, who interrupts Kiara's morning lesson with their father, Simba. He and Bunga begin a heated game of Baobab Ball, until Simba tells them to take their game elsewhere. Leaving Simba and Kiara in peace, Bunga and Kion chase each other across the Pride Lands, tossing the fruit back and forth. A friendly giraffe even gets involved, but the game eventually ends when the baobab fruit rolls into the Outlands.
