The Kongo Jungle is a vast jungle which appears in Donkey Kong Country. It is found on Donkey Kong Island, at the foot of Monkey Mines. It is depicted as the general location of DK's Tree House; a distinction it shares with the similar Jungle world in Donkey Kong Country Returns, which has been suggested to be the same location 
Donkey Kong Country
In Donkey Kong Country, Kongo Jungle is the first world. Most of the area is engulfed in a jungle, but there is a long cavern about midway through. The cavern's exit leads to the second half of Kongo Jungle, which itself directly leads to a large lake. The original Super Nintendo Entertainment System release shows two halves of Kongo Jungle in separate screens.
Donkey Kong Country television series
Kongo Jungle reappears as the Kongs' residence for the Donkey Kong Country television series.
Super Smash Bros. series
Kongo Jungle (spelled "Congo Jungle" in the original Super Smash Bros.) appears as one of the arenas in Super Smash Bros. The Kongo Jungle stage is made out of a large wooden platform with several smaller, sometimes floating ones around it. There is also a vast jungle in the background of the arena and a Barrel Cannon underneath the arena. In Super Smash Bros. Melee, in addition to the previous Kongo Jungle returning, another Kongo Jungle stage (later renamed "Kongo Falls" in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate) was introduced. This Kongo Jungle stage is constructed out of logs strewn together, which are sitting on rocks jutting out of a waterfall. In the background of this stage is a vast jungle along with what appears to be DK's Tree House. Kongo Jungle in Super Smash Bros. later returns in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, while both versions reappear in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
A recreation of the original Kongo Jungle world map appears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's Adventure mode, World of Light, where it is named "DK Island". It can be visited via a portal on the east side of the world map. In DK Island, Donkey Kong-series spirits appear in the locations the levels were originally (with the exception of Barrel Cannon Canyon; Jungle Hijinxs serves as the area's starting point), in the following order: Kritter (Ropey Rampage), Cranky Kong (Cranky's Cabin), Zinger (Reptile Rumble), Enguarde (Coral Capers), Funky Kong (Funky's Flights), Candy Kong (Candy's Save Point), and Diddy Kong (Very Gnawty's Lair). Defeating Funky Kong's puppet fighter unlocks Funky Kong's Shack, one of the shops in Spirits mode.
