"Who is up for a bird's eye view of Cape Town?"

Teams must drive to Melkboss Air Strip in Melkbosstrand. The team member assigned to this Roadblock must perform a tandem skydive from a height of 9,000 feet (2,700 m). The non-participating team member had to help guide their partner to the landing zone using signal flares. After team members reunited, the instructor handed them their next clue.

Teams must drive to Nobel Square, where they would find their next clue.

At Nobel Square, the teams encountered an Intersection, where two teams must work together until further notice.

The teams that Intersected are as follows:

The joined teams must drive to Intyatyambo Orphanage in Khayelitsha Township. They had to load two trailers with toys and supplies at Kargo Warehouse and deliver them to the Intyatyambo Orphanage. Once everything was delivered, the teams received their next clue. At this point, teams were no longer joined.

Choice A: Guns
Teams must drive to Valley Gun Club in Paarl and had to shoot nine moving clay targets using a shotgun at the Valley Gun Club in order to receive their next clue. Team members had to alternate shooting after five shots.

Jeff & Luke, Matt & Tom, Mo & Mos and Tyler & Nathan chose this task.

Choice B: Rosé
Teams must drive to Nelson's Creek Wine Estate in Paarl and had to roll a large wine barrel across the wine estate to a station, and completely fill it with rosé in order to receive their next clue.

Alana & Mel, Anastasia & Chris, Kelly & Dave and Sam & Renae chose this task.

Teams make their way to Atlantis Dunes in Atlantis. They must drive quad bikes to an area filled with fifteen overturned baskets. Underneath three baskets were teams' next clue while the rest contained hourglasses of varying sizes that teams had to overturn, and they had to wait for the sand to run out before they could continue racing.

Teams must drive to Rhodes Memorial to check in.
For coming in first place, Tyler & Nathan won a home entertainment system.
