Stampede Sprint is the thirty-sixth level in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! It is also the first area of Krematoa. In the game's Game Boy Advance remake, it is instead the forty-second level of the game.
This is the last jungle level of the game, and for most of it, the Kongs play as Ellie the Elephant. Near Ellie's barrel is Parry the Parallel Bird, who needs to be guided through the level. Once the Kongs turn into Ellie, the elephant comes across three Sneeks, who send her running across the level out of control. If the player can guide Ellie, as well as Parry to the end of the level without dying, the No Animal Sign turns the bird into a one-chance Bonus Barrel. Squawks and Squitter make a brief appearance as well. In addition to the Sneeks, enemies here include Bristles, Buzzes, Kuff 'n' Klout (in their debut), and Krimps.
The Kongs travel up the path and cross a large abyss with Dixie's ponytail twirl move. On the other side of the gap, they land into an Animal Barrel, which turns them into Ellie the Elephant. After this, the elephant will need to hit a crate with Parry the Parallel Bird to free him. Once this is done, she jumps into a nearby barrel and blasts over a gap to the next part of the level. There, she meets a group of three Sneeks, who frighten her, causing the elephant to run. Ellie automatically runs through the level, passing some enemies, such as Bristles, and crossing gaps. The elephant makes her way over many, many more obstacles at high speed, eventually meeting Kuff 'n' Klouts running towards her. After crossing several gaps, she heads under some Buzzes and over a few other enemies to find the letter N. Farther on, Ellie travels over several more Kuff 'n' Klouts. After that, she runs through an area full of Bristles as she moves under Buzzes. Once she passes a few more Kuff 'n' Klouts, she finds the letter G and hop into another barrel. It blasts her to a safe area. If Parry is still safe, she turns into a Bonus Barrel. Farther on, the Kongs pass a No Animal Sign and turn back into the Kongs. The Kongs then reach the Level Flag.
