Lakeside Limbo is the first level of Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! It is located in Lake Orangatanga.
This level takes place on a series of boardwalks hanging over a large body of water. As the first level in the game, Lakeside Limbo does not feature any unique obstacles or hazards, so the Kongs should have no trouble at all making their way to the end of the stage. There are a few Sneeks and Kobbles throughout the area, as well as a single Booty Bird, although they shouldn't give the Kongs much of a problem either, as they can be defeated with a simple jump. The apes can also ride Ellie the Elephant, in her debut, in the later half of the level.
At the beginning of the level, the Kongs find themselves under a small tunnel. One more tunnel supported by large stilts is ahead that they must go through. If they travel farther, they head along a large set of boardwalks over the lake, meeting several Sneeks, a barrel, and the letter K on the way. After climbing up a small ledge nearby, they pass the level's first Kobble as they approach a formation of bananas creating the letter R. Soon, the apes come up to some tightropes. On the boards below the rope, they encounter the level's Koin, as well as the letter O under another short tightrope. If they choose to continue from this point, they head down the straight pathway to some Kobbles in a small alcove. They can simply get over these enemies by using the tightrope above them. Once they pass these enemies, they find a tunnel with a Star Barrel on the other side of it.
About halfway into the level, the Kongs can find a DK Barrel and a large gap of water between to areas of the wharf. To continue, they have to swim through the water and jump out onto another set of boardwalks. There, they can find a Kobble and a small gap with the letter N above it. Near this, they can find a mostly-flat pathway leading to a ledge. Jumping off of this ledge causes the primates to land on a crate with Ellie in it. They can free the elephant and continue, riding on her. Near Ellie's crate, the group meets a Booty Bird flying in the air that they can defeat with a nearby barrel to earn the letter G. After climbing over a raised piece of the boards, they move along a flat surface and pass a lone Kobble to find a No Animal Sign. It makes Ellie disappear once she passes it. Not too far from this sign, the heroes can discover a Level Flag. Raising the flag ends the level.
