  1. "About Jungle: The Jungle is the first world. This is Donkey Kong’s natural environment. There are lots of trees whose tops serve as platforms. Awks are one of the main enemies you face here, along with the tricky Frogoons. of course, expect some of the Tikis, such as Tiki Goons and Tiki Dooms. This world is the least dangerous of the eight, so it is a great place for learning how to control Donkey Kong and experimenting with his various moves." - Donkey Kong Country Returns Prima Official Game Guide, 2010, p. 18
