The baboons throw fruit at the vultures from the top of Mapango Cliffs

When a baby baboon is rescued by the Lion Guard, Fuli is tasked with bringing him home. Kion mistakenly points her toward Nyani Grove, where she is informed that the baby belongs to Mapango Cliffs. Though loathe to travel so far, Fuli reluctantly takes the trip to the cliffs.

Once there, the baby baboon climbs eagerly up the cliffs and is embraced by his worried mother. Just then, Mzingo and his cronies attack, prompting Fuli to climb up the cliffside to aid the baboons. As she climbs, the baboons heave fruit at the vultures, buying her time, and the baby baboon hits Mzingo himself, allowing Fuli to jump down the cliffs and pin him to the ground.

After the rescue, the baboons chant Fuli's name and climb down the cliffs. The baby baboon's mother thanks Fuli personally.

"The Ukumbusho Tradition"

When Mtoto's mother is spooked by a horde of bees, she blindly stampedes up Mapango Cliffs. Luckily, before she can trample off the cliffside, she is calmed and rescued by Bunga.

"Divide and Conquer"
