Points of Interest[edit]

Mumbo's Mountain Tokens and Honeycomb Locations

Mumbo Tokens[edit]

  1. Under the wooden steps leading to Mumbo's Skull
  2. Behind the Stonehenge-like area on the ground
  3. On the platforms near Conga's tree, near where you hit the Grunty Pad and get the Egg Shooting ability
  4. Behind the pink Jinjo
  5. Inside Termite Mound; use the Talon Trot

Empty Honeycombs[edit]

  1. On the hill that the Termite Mound sits on. Climb up to the mountain and slide down the center; it is too steep for the Talon Trot. Alternatively, you can turn into a termite and simply climb down the hill.
  2. Above Mumbo's Totem pole. Destroy all but one of them, then jump on top and do a high jump. If you've already destroyed all of them, simply exit and reenter the level.

Extra Lives[edit]

  1. At the top of the Termite Mound, near the exit
  2. There are six huts outside Mumbo's hut. When you destroy the fifth one, the extra life statue appears.
