Nyani Grove (also called The Baboons' Forest) is a location in the Pride Lands.
Nyani Grove is a forest in the Pride Lands. It is a relatively flat area, composed of tall trees and boulders.
When Makuu, the new leader of the crocodiles, invades Big Springs, many animals of the Pride Lands are pushed out of their habitat. Zazu hears word that a herd of giraffes has moved into Nyani Grove, but Simba and Nala are not at Pride Rock to hear the report. Their daughter, Kiara, comes to her brother Kion instead, and Kion sets out to confront Makuu.
In the meantime, the baboons move into Pride Rock, prompting Kion to confront Makuu for a second time and ensure that he leaves Big Springs.
When the Lion Guard saves a baby baboon from Mzingo and his flock, Kion tasks Fuli with returning him to the baboons in Nyani Grove. However, when Fuli arrives in Nyani Grove, the leader of the baboons tells her that the baby belongs to the baboons in Mapango Cliffs.
Though loathe to travel so far, Fuli reluctantly sets off for the cliffs. As she leaves, the leader of the baboons tells her to bring a message to their neighbors, after which he and his fellow baboons pelt fruit at Fuli.
- "Nyani" means "baboon" in Swahili.
- In "The Rise of Makuu", Ono incorrectly refers to Nyani Grove as the "monkeys' forest" in his report to Kion.
