Physical Attributes

The gorge is a dry canyon found within the confinements of the Pride Lands. It is bordered by cliffs on all sides, and in the sequel, it has a river running through it. Less vegetation is known to be grown there, as the gorge is known for its searing heat and dry soil. Above one end of the gorge, a herd of wildebeests can be seen grazing.

Three hyenas cause a wildebesst stampede. The animals run into The Gorge, where a lion cub named Simba is currently awaiting a surprise. His father Mufasa arrives and saves him, but winds up being trampled.

The gorge appears when Timon and Pumbaa try to make the gorge their permanent residence despite its immense heat. However, they encounter a brief wildebeest stampede of their own which causes them to fall to the side of the gorge to where they fall near a waterfall.
