Hornet Hole is the first stage in Krazy Kremland, the twentieth stage in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, and the eighteenth stage in Donkey Kong Land 2. It is preceded by Kudgel's Kontest in the original, but by Kleever's Kiln in the remake, and is followed by Target Terror.


This stage is the first beehive stage in the game.

It contains many obstacles for Diddy and Dixie to traverse, including patches of honey on the floor which prevent the Kongs from moving so long as they are standing on it. There are also patches of honey on the walls which the Kongs have to use in order to climb higher up the hive.
