She resides in the Pride Lands.
Vuruga Vuruga is very kindhearted and polite. She is gracious to Kiara when the young princess presides over a buffalo ceremony and is also very understanding. Despite her usual kindness and politeness any animal who she does not trust or knows would probably cause trouble she would set up traps to humiliate them.
Simba and Nala task their daughter, Kiara, with presiding over the Royal Buffalo Wallow for Vuruga Vuruga's herd of buffalo. After a mishap with the floodwaters, the young princess appears drenched in mud and water and greets Vuruga Vuruga with a bow. Vuruga Vuruga bows respectfully to Kiara and appears pleased by her presence. She praises Kiara's appearance, mentioning that royals tend to be very stuffy at these events and that Kiara must clearly understand what the event is all about, adding that she is very impressed.
Hearing the unexpected praise over her appearance, Kiara gives credit to her friends, Tiifu and Zuri, who always insist that she looks her best for important events such as these. Vuruga Vuruga smiles kindly towards them, making Tiifu and Zuri feel pleased that they could help their friend after all. Kiara then steps forward and announces the start of the Wallow, and Vuruga Vuruga stands at Kiara's side, watching as her herd participates in the important event.
