Chimp Caverns is the sixth and final world in Donkey Kong Country, located in the eye area of Donkey Kong Island. As its name suggests, Chimp Caverns is set in a large cavern, and it occurs before the boss fight against King K. Rool on Gang-Plank Galleon.

There are five levels in Chimp Caverns, and an additional sixth level, Necky Nutmare, in the Game Boy Color port. Master Necky Snr. is the boss of Chimp Caverns, and is fought at the bottom-right corner of the area. Chimp Caverns appears to be another industrial Kremling mining center like the previous world, Kremkroc Industries, Inc., considering the presence of fuel-run platforms in Tanked Up Trouble and metal platforms in Platform Perils. Chimp Caverns also features numerous mines, including one filled with mist. A body of water appears at the bottom of the world map, dividing the location in two. The Kongs can cross the water by using a bridge. A ladder is also shown at the left and right sides of the world map each.

Like the other worlds, Chimp Caverns's world map was changed for the Game Boy Advance port. Here, it has a more volcanic appearance, as shown from the cracked rocks below. There are also some Mine Carts on a track adjacent to Funky's Fishing. Despite the implementation of these map features, none of them appear within the levels. The large pond from the previous two versions was also removed, along with the ladder on the east side of the map. Cranky's Hut is also located on top of a rocky structure, followed by two smaller ones.

The debut level is similar to Trick Track Trek in that the Kongs travel on a moving platform, but it is drastically different. While there is a similar layout, the moving platform now runs on fuel that quickly drains. The Kongs must constantly collect Fuel Barrels to keep the platform moving until the end. Kritter

Loopy Lights
The level has ON/OFF Barrels that function similarly to the Stop & Go Barrels of Stop & Go Station, and it going from dark to bright is somewhat similar to Blackout Basement. By default, the level is entirely dark, meaning that the Kongs must use the ON/OFF Barrels to see ahead of them. Purple Klap Traps are the main enemy of this level. Klaptrap

Platform Perils
The final regular level of the stage. Platform Perils involves Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong moving across numerous platforms, each with an arrow indicating the direction they go in.

Many of the platforms are occupied by a gray Krusha, who can only be defeated by using a nearby Vine Barrel. Krusha
