Haraka is an ostrich who lived during the reign of Simba.
Interested, Rafiki leans forward and asks where the baboons are. Haraka tells him that they're in "Fast Falls," then corrects himself and says, "Grass Walls." Rafiki asks what's going on, and Haraka tries hard to remember what the baboons are having trouble with. He contemplates locusts being the cause of the problem, then hyenas, then wonders if it is both. He begins going into a spiral of guesses until Rafiki finally demands him to think, for it is important. Haraka, still confused, admits that he doesn't remember and that all he knows is that the baboons are in deep trouble. With a hasty goodbye, he takes off.
Haraka looks like an ordinary ostrich. He has a dark gray body, long legs, a white neck, a white tail, and dark gray wings with white tips.
Personality and traits
|“||Haraka: It's, uh...uh...oh, golly. I want to get this right. It's about the baboons!|
Rafiki: Baboons! Where?
Haraka: Fast Falls! No, wait. Make that Grass Walls. The baboons in Grass Walls are in big trouble!
Haraka is shown as being absent-minded and a little gossipy. His long legs get him around the the Pride Lands, and this leads to him learning and passing around a lot of stories in very short time. He also has trouble focusing on a task, as is seen when Rafiki keeps prompting him for information about the baboons in Grass Walls.
