- Sarabi: "So where is this really cool place?"
Simba: "Oh...uh, around the water hole."
Nala: "The water hole? What's so great about the water hole?"
- —Simba lies to Sarabi
The Water Hole is a location seen in The Lion King franchise. It is the main source of water in the Pride Lands, and also the setting for the song "I Just Can't Wait to Be King". It also appears in The Lion King: Six New Adventures spin-off book called "How True, Zazu?"
- “Step lively! The sooner we get to the water hole, the sooner we can leave.”
- ―Zazu to Simba and Nala
After Scar "accidentally" lets it slip that there's an elephant graveyard on the outskirts of the Pride Lands, Simba is fascinated by the idea, and runs off to tell his best friend Nala. He uses the water hole as a distraction, lying to Sarabi and Sarafina about where he really wants to go with Nala. The parents agree, but only if Zazu tags along. While the cubs follow behind Zazu to the water hole, they come up with a plan to get rid of the hornbill, where the song "I Just Can't Wait to be King" is performed.
Cheka, Sukari, Lulu and Nzuri are seen playing in the water hole while their parents stand off to the side and discuss Zazu's nosiness.
The Brightest Star
When a drought strikes the Pride Lands, the water hole becomes a war zone. A particularly selfish lion attempts to ward off the many animals who attempt to drink from the pool, hogging the water and refusing to share with his fellow Pridelanders. In order to solve the dispute, Mohatu seeks out a new source of water.
- The water hole makes a possible appearance in the Timon & Pumbaa episode "Beauty and the Wildebeest."
