At the start of the game, Kigali can be seen soaring over the Pride Lands in search of the animals who'd fled Scar's reign. He soon returns to Gaucíngoua and reports their locations, and Gaucíngoua instructs Timon and Pumbaa to bring the animals back to the Pride Lands. Throughout the game, Kigali can be seen perched on Gaucíngoua's head.
Reedy and thin, Kigali is a rather small bird with an elongated beak and head. His feathers are white, though the tops and undersides of his tail and wings are black. His beak is a very pale orange, with yellow strips under his eyes and along his mouth, and he has a crest of black-tipped feathers on his head.
