Teams must make their way to The Lookout Café, where they would find their next clue.
"Who wants to gorge themselves?"
The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must put on a harness and free-fall 200 feet into the Batoka Gorge and swing above the Zambezi River. Once they return to the top, they would receive their next clue.
The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:
Choice A: Crocs
Teams must make their way to Crocodile Cage Diving at Elephants Walk Shopping and Artist Village, where they must change into wetsuits and be submerged in a metal cage to feed meat to three Nile crocodiles using poles. Once the crocodiles are fed, they would receive their next clue.
Denise & James Earl used their Express Pass to bypass the Crocs Detour.
Choice B: Canoes
Teams must make their way to A'Zambezi River Lodge, where they must paddle an inflatable canoe together across the Zambezi River. Once they reach the riverbank on the other side, one team member must hoist their partner up a tree to retrieve the clue from a vulture's nest, and then to paddle back across the river.
Teams must make their way to The Lion Encounter at Masuwe Safari Lodge, where they would find their next clue.
Teams must walk through the bush accompanied by safari instructors and two lions while searching for one of several skulls that contained their next clue. Only two teams are permitted to perform this task at a time.

- This episode's Roadblock is a Switchback to the Air Detour in the series premiere, albeit on the Zimbabwean side of the Batoka Gorge, rather than the Zambian side.
- With Jazmine & Danielle's elimination, Tiffany & Krista are the last all-female team standing.
- The episode title is said by host Phil Keoghan.
