You stand on the wind-swept tip of the Promontory, looking at the wide panorama of African life before you in awe. A quick glimpse off the tip of the rock at the ground below makes you feel like backing back a couple of steps. The spot where you are standing is known as the Lecturn, or place of announcements. Many important proclamations were made from there, and many important royal mantlements and presentations took place there. Once young Simba was presented there, and he returned to that spot to claim his office as King. You can head west to get back to the cave. Any other direction would be suicidal!
