Lakeside Limbo is the first level of Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! It is located in the first world, Lake Orangatanga. This level takes place on a series of boardwalks hanging over a large body of water. As the first level, Lakeside Limbo does not feature any unique obstacles or hazards. Dixie and Kiddy can use their team up ability early in the level to reach above for bonus items. There are a few basic enemies in the level, including Sneeks, Kobbles, and a single Booty Bird. There are a few segments where the Kongs can swim in the lake below. The Kongs can optionally break open an Animal Crate of Ellie the Elephant during the latter half of the level, and they can ride on her in some later parts of the level.
At the beginning of the level, the Kongs start under a small tunnel, which leads to a tunnel supported by large stilts. After the tunnel, there are long sets of boardwalks over the lake with Sneeks, a barrel, and the letter K. The player can then climb up a small ledge to reach the first Kobble and a formation of bananas creating the letter R. The next section has some tightropes, and on the boards below the ropes, there is a Koin and the letter O. The player must then go downwards through a straight pathway to some Kobbles in a small alcove with a tightrope. Continuing to the other side reveals a tunnel with a Star Barrel.
About halfway into the level, there is a DK Barrel and a large gap of water that must be swum through to reach another boardwalk. There, the player can find a Kobble and a small gap with the letter N above it. A pathway leading to a ledge is also located nearby. Jumping off this ledge causes the Kongs to land on a crate with Ellie in it. Near Ellie's crate, the player should defeat a Booty Bird to earn the letter G. After climbing over a raised piece of the boards, the Kongs reach a flat surface with a lone Kobble and No Animal Sign. Afterwards, the player can reach the Level Flag located nearby the sign.
