Movie: Tarzan, Disney 1999

Based on the book by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Tarzan chronicles the adventures of a lost child by the same name that was raised by Gorillas in the African jungle. One day, a British expedition lead by a woman named Jane Porter is marooned in the same area Tarzan and his Gorilla friends happen to be in.

Deep Jungle: Treehouse

As soon as you land from the crash, you're thrust into a fight.


Technically, it's the sub-boss Sabor, but you face him like three times and none of those times is he the slightest challenge.

After you finish off Sabor, Tarzan comes and rescues you. Follow him off the edge, but land on the netting below. Follow the net back under the treehouse to find a chest with Mega-ether. Kay, now follow Tarzan over the edge.

Deep Jungle: Jungle Slider

Not much to do in this area. There is a save point if you want. There is also a Mega-Potion in a chest on the platform near the top of this area. A little searching should bring you across it. Otherwise, jump into the hollow tree.

There isn't anything to sliding down the tree. At least for now. It becomes a minigame later though.

Whee? Never go the appeal.

Deep Jungle: Campsite

Here at the campsite there are two things that you might as well do now. First is looking around for slides for a slide show later. Second is gathering cooking instructions to make home-made Ethers and Hi-Potions. Lets start.









Notes 1

Notes 2

Notes 3

Notes 4

Examine the table, then use Blizzard

Examine the stove, ATTACK the stove to open the door, then use Fire

When you're done, enter the tent in the middle of the area.

Deep Jungle: Tent

A cutscene starts where you're re-united with Donald and Goofy. There is another save point here if you want. Open the chest in here for a Mythril Shard. If you collected all the slides outside, talk to Jane then examine the camera to start a slide show.


Sora notices the picture of the castle, which I'll explain later in the game (actually took me a couple play throughs to notice this ;) )

Anyway, it's blatantly obvious now who you're going to have to kill at the end of this planet. Well, exit out of the tent.

Deep Jungle: Campsite

Sabor shows up for the second time. Fight him off much easier this time with the addition of Donald and Goofy.

Blue Trinity #8

- Look for a Blue Trinity near where you entered the camp by the lab table to release Dalmatians 34-36.

Now follow Sabor deeper into the jungle.

Deep Jungle: Hippo's Lagoon

There are two ways to get to where we're going. We'll take the long way this time and the short slightly-less frustrating way next time we go through. Look for a tree on the left with a vine you can climb up.

Deep Jungle: Vines 1

You have to use the Jump On command to jump from vine to vine. The problem is, some times if your timing is off, you'll jump backward and will end up going the wrong way.


- Give it a try anyway. On your way across you'll come across a chest with Mythril inside.

Deep Jungle: Vines 2

Dalmatians 28, 29, 30

- A 1 implies a 2, no? Lucky us. This time, look for a chest with Dalmatians 28-30 inside.

Upon reaching the end, Tarzan will talk with the king Gorilla. The most likely reason he talks so good English is that he's probably actually talking in Gorilla and they just translated it for us.

Things didn't work out for us. Climb the vine next to Tarzan the leads higher into the trees.

Deep Jungle: Climbing Trees

Blue Trinity #9

Follow the path around to the top. Near the top exit is another Trinity with Dalmatians 31-33.

Deep Jungle: Treehouse

Back up at the Treehouse, Donald saves the Gorilla from being shot by Clayton.

That's all you came all this way for. Further, you came here on a whim, totally lost. Well whatever. Jump back down to the Campsite.

Deep Jungle: Campsite

Back at camp, Sabor attacks... again. This time though, if your fast, you wont even notice him. You'll go into battle mode just as you enter the tent. That is, unless you WANT to fight him.

Deep Jungle: Tent

Clayton gets a scolding from Jane, only to wonder outside and start firing off his gun. Save your game and exit the tent.

Deep Jungle: Campsite


There is a Gorilla surrounded by Powerwilds. Defeat all of them to save the Gorilla and get a gummi piece. Be careful, as Powerwilds are fast and crafty. They are one of the most annoying enemies, as you actually have to think when fighting. Mindless swinging will get you no where, you have to time your attacks.

Head into the Bamboo Thicket behind the Gorilla.

Deep Jungle: Bamboo Thicket

I've always liked Bamboo... Donno why, just do. It's a neat plant....

...Way off subject. More Powerwilds are harassing another Gorilla. Beat them, get another Gummi, move deeper into the forest.

Deep Jungle: Cliff


- One final Gorilla on this side of the map. After taking out the Powerwilds, look for a pole to climb. This leads to a ledge with a Mega-Potion and Mythril Shard in chests.

Head all the way back to Camp. Save, then continue into Hippo's Lagoon.

Deep Jungle: Hippo's Lagoon

This time, rather then going all the way through the vines, use the hippos in the water to jump across the swamp.

One of them raises and lowers, so watch for that. The final one is deceptively far from the final platform. Once on it's back, you'll have to utilize every inch to reach the platform with the chest.

If you miss, swim back over to the sinking hippo and wait for him to lower a bit so that you can get on and jump back over to the next-to-last platform.

Dalmatians 25, 26, 27

The chest contains Dalmatians 25-27. Climb the pole to get into the Vines area, then climb the vine next to you to reach Climbing Trees.

Deep Jungle: Climbing Trees

The fourth Gorilla and fourth set of Powerwilds. Continue into the Treehouse area when you're finished.

Deep Jungle: Treehouse

You'll have to follow the tree limb all the way to the top, then work your way around the wood planks to get into the treehouse where the final Gorilla is.

Once you've saved him, jump down into the Campsite.

Deep Jungle: Tent

Talk to Jane and save your game. As you exit the tent, a gunshot rings out from the Bamboo Thicket.

Deep Jungle: Bamboo Thicket


Sabor attacks for the (thank goodness) FINAL time. Things like Team Rocket. This time he's at least hard to hit, as he jumps in and out of the Bamboo forest.

Once he's done, there's trouble at the Campsite. Fight your way through the Heartless all the way to the Climbing Trees area.

Deep Jungle: Climbing Trees

Giant Purple... Thing

- There are infinite Powerwilds and Bouncywilds in this area. If you really want the EXP, this is a good place to do it. Besides that, lock on to the large black thing on the side of the tree and beat on it till it is destroyed and frees Jane for some reason.

Jane tells everyone that Clayton is, surprise, evil. Run back to camp, save, and enter the Cliff area.

Deep Jungle: Cliff

Boss Fight: Clayton

Part 1: Clayton Powerwilds

Clayton only has one attack: Shotgun. The only real thing he has going for him is the fact that he can heal himself endlessly. For now, take out the Powerwilds so you can focus on Clayton. Keep hammering Clayton till the next part of the battle starts.

Part 2: Clayton Stealth Sneak

It's still the same fight as before, only it's one large Powerwild, more or less. Focus on the Stealth Sneak. It's main attack is to kick with it's hind legs, which isn't that effective.

Once it takes some damage, it'll shake Clayton off it's back and start using an energy type attack. This attack is easily dodged and slow moving, so just keep pounding him.

After he's down, beat on Clayton some more till it's finally over.



In the end, Kerchak will give you the gift of launching you into there home, in the waterfall area.

Deep Jungle: Waterfall Cavern

This area is a pain to navigate. The camera goes crazy and the platforms are misshaped. Do your best to reach the top, and look out for three chests, Shell-G, Mythril, and Orichalcum, all on the far side of the entrance.

Mythril Shard



Deep Jungle: Heart

This is the area with the Keyhole. Later, you'll come back for the White Trinity, but that's a ways off.

You'll be warped back to the Tent with your new Navi-G piece. Hop in your ship and head back to Traverse Town.

How do u get in the boat at the tree house?

Added 1st Sep 2014, ID #443388

Actually, to the bit about having to time your attacks more with that one monster, I did as I normally do, and I got past them just fine.

Added 24th Jul 2013, ID #300029

There is a person called emiruHD he does 100% walkthroughs and can beat Clayton easily idk how he does it?

Added 4th Apr 2013, ID #270603

Always go after Clayton. I managed to beat him on the first try by cornering him and keeping him away from that damned lizard. Just try cornering him and fighting him; also use Fire if you can because that helped me out a lot with trying to fight him. When you're trying to use potion to heal yourself, go away from them; it helped me, it might just help you out as well. Just keep trying if you don't do it on the first try. I promise you that you'll beat him.

Added 14th Mar 2013, ID #263535

How do you get into the heart of the jungle?

Added 4th Aug 2012, ID #172267

Hi, I defeated Clayton and the lizard. I was thrown to the top, but was curious and did not go into the cave. Instead I jumped of, back to where the battle had happened; however I can not find a way back up to reach the cave. Please help!
How can I climb back up there?
Thank you in advance!

Added 20th Apr 2012, ID #135117

Added 19th Apr 2012, ID #134880

at the end of the deep jungle when sora say good bye why dose it freze there i cannt do anything

Added 7th Mar 2012, ID #121196

I'm in the waterfall cavern and I can't find the heart. How do you get to it ?

And thanks a lot for your guide I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart ( I mean I think it's like that you say in english '' merci du fond du coeur '' et continue ton bon travail je l'apprรฉcie grandement! )

for the people who have problem to defeat Clinton or the Coliseum, the recommended level isn't there for nothing, I mean if you have it it should be doable, not easy but you should kill it the first time, for me it works, so the next time try to boost your level before a world (no pretension)

Added 4th Jan 2012, ID #102828

I've tried defeating Clayton, 20x I have a mega and a high potion, and I have the settings to where Tarzan and Goofy heal me quick before I die, but I still cannot defeat him.

Added 30th Dec 2011, ID #100585

Thanks for the help I guess, but those pictures are wrong. But that did help me a lot thanks!!!!!

Added 20th Dec 2011, ID #96694

Ok I've finished the Deep Jungel,and then they said to go to Travers Town and find Leon there. So i went on my little Gummi Ship and I clicked on Travers Town and it wouldnt let me go there! So what should I do i'm so lost please help me!

Added 2nd Dec 2011, ID #92050

it helps if you corner your enemies and then attack so they don't move away

Added 4th Nov 2011, ID #85070

Honestly, I don't see why you're having trouble with the Clayton/Lizard battle, I beat it on my first try using only one potion. Basically you just beat the lizard down and then turn on Clayton. It helps to have scan so you know how close you are to winning.

Added 8th Oct 2011, ID #79071

pfffffff, Clayton was a pushover if you level up a lot. Dodge the shadow monkeys and just rush it, beat the stuffing out of him. He goes down quick.

Added 5th Oct 2011, ID #78399

omg it is so freaking hard and i have three potions and donald has a hi-potion and mega-potion sooooo

Added 19th Sep 2011, ID #75491

Added 16th Aug 2011, ID #67773

its a good thing read this otherwise i would end up smashing everthing in my house and that would not have been pretty!!

Added 3rd Aug 2011, ID #63762

I'm still on wonderland, but I read. Ahead so now I know what to do when the time comes!

Added 2nd Aug 2011, ID #63560

hehe i love thos guide and kingdom hearts! oh and I beat the shizzams out of clayton! Thank youuuuu!

Added 27th Jul 2011, ID #61660

i can,t even pass swinging the vines

Added 8th Jul 2011, ID #55884

You have to keep hitting the lizard till it gets knocked out (you will see stars ) then hit clayton till he is gone. Then you get heal.

Added 26th Jun 2011, ID #52362

What is the purpose of the first slide though? I'm curious of it. It feels like it's something everyone should know because it will be used later on in the game... possibly later on in the series of games KH is becoming.

Added 10th Apr 2011, ID #36757

how do u get the red trinity

Added 15th Mar 2011, ID #32712

this was really helpful but one thing i noticed was in Waterfall cavern i found four chests, not just three.

Added 29th Jan 2011, ID #27244

So I think I did things out of order when I first started this level. I'm in the tree tops but I think I might have already got the chest with the mithrell because I can't find it. I go back to the camp, but those monkeys aren't there, it is just a tiger. How do I get to the gorillas?

Added 21st Jan 2011, ID #26235

few things you get cure after clayton fight! also you dont need to beat the lizard stealth sneak just hit him till he comes off then beat the shizzams out of clayton. also in the very begining dont waste your time with the heartless beat clayton the first time and they disappear!

Added 8th Oct 2010, ID #14691

i cant figure out how to kill clayton and the lizard tried every thing and it wont work

Added 26th Sep 2010, ID #13674

hey i tried this but i fail for 2times because i was level 14 but i cant kill him beacause its hard i dont have cure how do i get cure?
