Kao The Kangaroo's The Hungry Jungle is home to a village filled with monkeys and gorillas. They are seemingly a little juice obsessed, as you will be able to tell from the barrels of the stuff lining this majestic jungle. The Hungry Jungle is a hub stage, so it doesn't contain any enemies. However, much like Hopalloo Island before it, there are still a ton of collectibles lying around.

We will provide both a coherent path that will take you to each of these collectibles, as well as a quick reference guide that will help you find the odd collectible you may have missed. As is the case for all hubs in this game, there will be multiple runes that will not appear until after you have finished certain stages. Worry not, if you follow this guide you will acquire every collectible easily.

You will start The Hungry Jungle on the dock. From the dock, head straight while hugging the right side of the stage. Just across the little pond, you will find your first crystal (1/7). Now, head toward the little bridge that goes into the town proper. You will see a cave-like tunnel on your left. There is a scroll (1/2) in front of the tunnel; grab it. The second crystal (2/7) is also in that tunnel! And lastly, upon exiting said tunnel, you will see the second scroll (2/2).

Now, to your left there is a waterfall. Move through it, and you will be inside a cave. In this cave there is a treasure chest. Go grab it. On your way up to the treasure chest, you will encounter another crystal (3/7). Once you leave the waterfall cave, walk around the waterwheel, and you will see a crystal (4/7) sitting under the deck (right next to the gate to the Monkey Park stage).

Start making your way to the eastern section of the map (the opposite end from the waterfall). Follow the shoreline, and you will find another crystal (5/7) hidden in some bushes (it is by the water, just below where the gate to The Jungle Throne level is). Keep following the shoreline until you reach a bridge made of rocks. Cross this bridge and head straight. Climb the giant tree stumps, and you will find another crystal (6/7). It is right beside the gate to the River Track stage.

Now, follow the shoreline (moving away from The Jungle Throne level gate, and you will find some monkeys chilling out on the beach. Tucked away behind some boxes is another crystal (7/7). Jump on the nearby trampoline to collect some easy coins and put you on the other side of the beach. There is a rune (1/3) there just begging to be snatched up.

At this point, you should have every single collectible that is available from the onset. The rest will require that you complete certain stages. Once you have completed The Durian Valley you will be able to find a rune (2/3) above the gate guarding the River Track stage. Once you have completed the River Track stage you will be able to acquire the final rune (3/3). It is sitting on the rope bridge that is near the waterfall. And that should be everything
