Kiburi's Float is a float of crocodiles led by Kiburi that live in the Outlands.

Originally members of Makuu's Float, Kiburi and his followers were banished from the Pride Lands after attempting to attack King Simba.


Let Sleeping Crocs Lie

Kiburi's float is formed after a failed attempt to take down King Simba. They are banished to the Outlands, where Ushari introduces them to Scar, who welcomes them. They hear about his plan, and seem interested in joining his cause.

The newbie

Kiburi's float hear about a potential new member, who may be able to help them return to the Pride Lands. Although surprised to see the new face is a gecko named Hodari, they allow him to win the Traditional Crocodile Initiation Spar, and he joins their float.

They leave for the Pride Lands with their new member in tow, but are turned away by the Lion Guard, despite Hodari's friendship with the float.

Hodari returns

After returning to the Outlands, they are joined once again by Hodari, who remains loyal to them. Kiburi uses Hodari's knowledge of Makuu's fighting techniques and, upon learning that Makuu is injured, they return to the Pride Lands, this time concealing themselves from the Lion Guard.

When the coast is clear, they attack Makuu's float. Although they initially have the upper hand in combat, the Lion Guard arrive to help Makuu's float. When Kiburi is defeated by Makuu with help from Hodari, Kion uses his Roar of the Elders to send them back home again.
