Teams must fly to Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. Upon arrival, teams must take a taxi to Gare de Ouagadougou, where they would find their next clue.

Teams must take a train to Bingo in Boulkiemdé Province. Teams must listen for their stop, which would be in the middle of nowhere. After exiting the train, teams must search for their next clue.

"Who's ready to work up a thirst?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must milk a Dromedary camel and collect its milk in a dried gourd bowl, up to a marked line. Once finished, they must show their bowl to a Tuareg nomad for approval and then drink all the milk to receive their next clue. If a team member is unable to obtain the sufficient amount of milk from his or her own camel, he or she must wait until all other teams have completed the task before trying to milk another camel.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must lead four camels across a marked path to a group of nomads. Once the camels are delivered, teams would receive their next clue.

Choice A: Teach It
Teams must teach schoolchildren, who did not speak English, to memorize ten words in English, after which they would later be tested by a local teacher. When the teacher was satisfied that the children could recite the words, teams would receive the next clue.

Nicolas & Donald, Ron & Christina, Shana & Jennifer, and TK & Rachel chose this task.


Choice B: Learn It
Teams must learn from the local schoolchildren ten words in the Mooré language. Teams were then tested by a local teacher, until the teacher was satisfied and gave them their next clue.

Azaria & Hendekea, Kynt & Vyxsin, Lorena & Jason, Marianna & Julia, and Nathan & Jennifer chose this task.

Teams must follow a marked path to the outskirts of Bingo to check in. For coming in first, Azaria & Hendekea won a five-night vacation to Bermuda.
