Prior to departure, teams were moved from Plage de Passable to Cap-d'Ail marina.

Teams must fly to Windhoek, Namibia. Upon arrival at Hosea Kutako International Airport, teams must sign up for one of six bush planes departing at designated intervals to the Erindi Private Game Reserve, where they would find their next clue, one of which conceals a Date Night ticket.

Teams must drive themselves to the San Village in the reserve, where they would find their next clue. Along the way, they must pick up a salt lick at a marked stand along the side of the road.

"Who's feeling grassy?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must work with the bushmen in building a traditional hut using wooden sticks and dried grass. Once the hut is completely built, a bushman would give them their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must drive themselves to the Ranger Headquarters in the reserve, where they must deliver their salt lick to the head ranger in exchange for their next clue.

Choice A: Track
Teams must choose a truck and use a telemetric device consisting of an antenna and a beacon to track down an elephant in the reserve. Once teams have located an elephant, their driver would give them their next clue.

Aly & Steve and Hayley & Blair chose this task.

Choice B: Pack
Teams must cut slices of wildebeest meat, avoiding the bones, until they completely fill a bucket. They must then board a truck and feed the meat to a pack of African wild dogs to receive their next clue. Only three workstations are available at a time.

Jelani & Jenny, Laura & Tyler, Matt & Ashley, and Mike & Rochelle chose this task.

Teams must drive themselves to the Spitzkoppe to check in.

For coming in first place, Matt & Ashley each won $5,000.

For winning the Date Night ticket, Laura & Tyler won a romantic hot stone massage during the Pit Stop.

For coming in last place, Aly & Steve will have to perform a Speed Bump at some point during the next leg of the race.
