The Pride Lands is the main setting for the Lion King movies, and for the spin-off books. In the real world, they would be situated in the African Savanna. In the Pride Lands, a male lion rules as king and keeps the peace between the animals. When the king dies, whoever is next in line will take the throne at Pride Rock, that could be a sibling or an off-spring. Beyond the borders of the Pride Lands, there is an Elephant Graveyard and the Outlands.
The Outlands is where the exiled lions of the Pridelands, the lions who were banished by Simba for remaining loyal to Scar, resided. The area has a desert-like terrain with small cliffs, trees, and few plants, and seemingly no fauna. The Outsiders used to live in an extremely large termite mound, but in the end of Disney's The Lion King II: Simba's Pride, the Outsiders returned to the Pridelands, realizing how pointless it was to continue fighting. The Outlands lie beyond the Pridelands and beyond the Elephant Graveyard
