|“||Simba: Kion, you see that patch of green, far out in the distance?|
Kion: Mbali Fields?
Simba: Mbali Fields. That's where the zebras and gazelles can find their grass.
Mbali Fields is a lush grazing ground on the edge of the Pride Lands. The land is relatively flat, with a few areas of foliage and rocks, and is bordered by a range of small mountains.
When Muhimu and Swala fight for possession of a depleted grazing ground, Kion goes to his father, Simba, for advice. Simba advises Kion to lead the herds across the Pride Lands to Mbali Fields, a grazing ground on the edge of the kingdom. Though Kion wonders if he is capable of leading a migration, Simba has faith in his son.
Not long after this, Kion asks Ono to scout a route to Mbali Fields, and the egret comes back with a planned path through the Pride Lands. With his route scouted, Kion leads the herds across the Pride Lands, but when Mbali Fields comes into sight, Muhimu loses patience and starts a stampede toward the grazing ground. Though the Lion Guard attempts to stop the panic, the herds cause rocks to fall into their path, and they are forced to cut through the Outlands in order to reach Mbali Fields.
Mbali Fields is seen during the musical sequence "Life in the Pride Lands".
- "Mbali" means "distant" or "far" in Swahili.
