Red Wharf is the first level of the world, located south of Cape Codswallop, in the classic Game Boy and Game Boy Color game, Donkey Kong Land III. Its name is a pun on the British television comedy series Red Dwarf.
In this stilt level, the Kongs need to walk along a series of boardwalks overhanging a large body of water. Noticeably, this level is the Donkey Kong Land III equivalent of Lakeside Limbo from Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, and both feature Sneeks and Kobbles. Although Red Wharf mostly takes place on the docks, the Kongs can also swim in the shallow water to find extra bananas and a Bonus Barrel. As the game's first level, Red Wharf does not feature any exclusive hazards and is a rather short level. The Kongs will, however, not only be walking along boardwalks and swimming through some shallow water, but sometimes be climbing along short tightropes or shooting through barrels.
At the start of the level, the heroes need to walk down a few boardwalks and defeat some enemies. Following some banana trails, the Kongs pass a few Sneeks and find the letter K. After that, they need to hop up onto a ledge and continue east, where they have to run down some slanted pathways and then follow some bananas, in the formation of an arrow, into the shallow water. There, the heroes find the letter O. Once they get the letter, they have to jump out of the sea and walk up the path to find the level's Star Barrel.
About halfway through the level, the Kongs need to walk down more other the path, defeating enemies, and hop into a barrel to be shot into the letter N. They, then, land on a higher area of the level. At the end of the area, they need to follow a banana trail downwards and roll into a small abyss to get the letter G. After that, they are greeted by more enemies to beat. Knocking each one out, the apes have to walk down the straight boardwalks to find a flagpole. Touching it ends the level.
