Synopsis

A high seas adventure turns into a nightmare for one racer, and one team hits a breaking point when they are pulled from a plane they have already boarded.

Teams must fly to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Upon arrival, they must take a taxi to the ferry terminal and pull a number to one of four separate dhows to Zanzibar City on the island of Unguja. Once in Zanzibar City, teams must find a marked kiosk, where a man would give them their next clue.

Choice A: Solve It
Teams must make their way one-third of a mile to the Beyt al Chai hotel, where they would put together a 62-piece puzzle that recreates an image from the tinga tinga style of local artwork. Once the puzzle was completely solved, they would receive their next clue.

Charla & Mirna, Eric & Danielle, Joe & Bill, Oswald & Danny, Teri & Ian, and Uchenna & Joyce chose this task.


Choice B: Schlep It
Teams must make their way one mile to the Kijangwani Lumber Yard. Once there, they must choose a local handcart and load two 50-pound logs onto their cart. Once loaded, teams must travel more than a mile to deliver the logs to a dhow shipyard, where the manager would give them their next clue.

Only Dustin & Kandice chose this task.

Teams must make their way to the village of Kikungwi, where they would find their next clue.

"Who's on target?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must learn how to use a traditional Maasai wooden weapon called a rungu by throwing it 65 feet to shatter a clay target in order to retrieve their next clue from inside.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must make their way to Stone Town and find the Old Fort of Zanzibar to check in. For coming in first, Charla & Mirna won a 12.5-foot catamaran for each team member.
