Muhanga has dark tan fur that bears a slight olive tint, with a pale brown face and underbelly and brown eyes. Her legs are dark brown, and her incisive claws are grey. Her tail is a pale cream, and her nose is tan.
Little is shown of Muhanga's personality, but she is shown to be somewhat territorial and aggressive. She is also somewhat hasty, in that she was quick to accuse Reirei's pack of being thieves and quick to call the Lion Guard when she believed hyenas to be in her den. Also she listens to Bunga's advice.
Muhanga is one of the animals taking part in singing Our Kupatana Community. She is later seen returning to her den with Muhangus. She discovers that Dogo and his siblings have invaded the aardvark dens, much to Muhanga's annoyance. Beshte assures her that he and Bunga will take care of the situation, and the two call for Kion. Muhanga and her mate become even more angry when the father of the jackal pups, Goigoi, steals a fruit from her den, and accuses him of being a thief.
Towards the end of the day, she is seen amongst those celebrating Kupatana.
