A Jungle appears as a setting in The Lion King, The Jungle Book, and Tarzan, as well as each franchise's various spin-offs.

In The Jungle Book

The jungle that appears in The Jungle Book is located somewhere in India. It appears to be very vast, and is home to a wide variety of wildlife. At times, references are made to various parts of the jungle, mostly in relation to Shere Khan's location. When Mowgli is approximately 10 years old, Shere Khan returns to the part of the jungle where the wolves and Mowgli make their home. This forces the pack to send Mowgli away for their safety, as Shere Khan would kill them otherwise. This area of the jungle is said to be near a man-village, where Mowgli later lives. Also present are ancient ruins where King Louie and his monkeys make their home.

Colonel Hathi and his herd are said to patrol the jungle, as part of cross-country marches.

In The Lion King

In The Lion King franchise, an African jungle is the home of Timon, Pumbaa, and, temporarily, Simba. The jungle borders a vast desert, however, the jungle itself is lush and full of water. After Simba is rescued by Timon and Pumbaa, he lives here with them until adulthood. It is unknown if any other animals live in the area. Bugs are seen, and are a primary food source for the trio, but little else is seen.

In The Lion King 1½, it is revealed that Timon and Pumbaa found the place while searching for their perfect home. At the end of the film, Timon brings the rest of his meerkat colony to live here, as it is free from predators.

In Tarzan

The jungle that appears in the Tarzan franchise is the home of Tarzan, his wife Jane, and his mother Kala. It is also the habitation of Tantor and Terk and the other elephants and gorillas, as well as other creatures, such as baboons, crocodiles and cheetahs.
