Continuity 

When Kovu's training is being reviewed, the notch in Zira's ear switches from ear to ear.
The number of lionesses in both prides change repeatedly.
When Vitani and Nuka go to get fire at the geysers, Vitani has a dark lining in her ear that disappears and reappears between shots.
When Rafiki draws a blue line over the drawing of young Kiara ,the shape and position of it changes in the next shot.
One of the bugs on Timon's platter changes color.
When Kovu and Kiara are looking into the pond and their faces are connected half and half, Kovu's scar is on the wrong side in the reflection in the pond.
Just before 'Upendi', as Rafiki sticks his hand out of the grass, the fur on Kovu's elbow disappears, then reappears.
(at around 20 mins) When Kovu falls over onto his back to Zira lecturing him on the Pride Landers, Kovu backs up along the bare ground and then starts to sit up, and cowers down again. The background artists forgot to put in the rock that he would be backed up against - his ears flatten against the invisi-rock.
When Kiara and Kovu are reunited amongst the snow, they can be seen singing the playing song for about 5 seconds, but in the previous and following shots, they are not singing.

Errors in geography 

Okapis appear several times in the film. Whilst these animals are native to Africa, they live in dense rainforest, not on the plains where lions are found (and where they appear in the film). They would never naturally encounter lions.

Factual errors 

The topi (large brown antelope) that Kiara pursues make wildebeest noises.

Spoilers 

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Character error 

When Zira drowns and dies, the scar above Kovu's eye disappears, then reappears later.

Continuity 

At the end of the film all the lions are sitting in a circle. When Simba, Nala, Kovu and Kiara leave the circle and walk along the middle, the lions are now sitting in a straight line.

Continuity 

At the end of the movie, when Simba, Nala, Kiara, and Kovu are walking to the tip of Pride Rock the lioness' in the circle number in 13. In the next shot there are 15. And when lined up as the Royalty walk by there are 12.

Miscellaneous 

It might take some time to notice but if you fast forward the movie to after Zira drowns at 1:12:52. One of Kiara's claws is not colored in.
