The Outlands is a forbidden area outside the Pride Lands. Its inhabitants are known as Outlanders.

The Outlands are a stony network of canyons, gorges, and caverns. The light usually appears to be very dim, likely because of the ashy gray clouds blanketing the sky. The skeletons of other unfortunate animals can be seen. Deep within the Outlands is an active volcano with darker and more desolate surroundings, including withered trees.

The baobab falls into the Outlands

It is implied that Simba had forbid Kion go to the Outlands. When Bunga and Kion's baobab fruit fell down into the Outlands, Kion refused to go. However, Bunga leapt down there regardless, not worrying about the consequences. After reclaiming the Baobab fruit, he encountered two hyenas, Cheezi and Chungu, one of which grabbed him by the fur on his neck. Kion was able to use the Roar of the Elders to shock them into letting Bunga go.

When Kion was getting the Lion Guard together, a vulture named Mzingo overheard the news and flew deeper into the Outlands to relay the message to Janja. Mzingo and the hyenas then plotted to take down as many animals as they could before the formation of the new Guard.
