Only Becca & Floyd and Chris & Bret's departure times were shown. The other six teams' departure times are unknown.

Teams must fly to Kampala, Uganda. Upon arrival, teams must take a taxi to the Uganda National Mosque, where they would find their next clue. Teams must don customary clothing before entering the mosque.

Teams must count the number of stairs of the Uganda National Mosque's minaret, then present it to a guard at the top of the minaret. If they calculate the correct answer (272), they would receive their next clue.

Teams must take a taxi to Owino Market, enter through the main entrance, and find Soweto Restaurant, where they would find their next clue.

At Owino Market, Rachel & Elissa would receive their clue for their Speed Bump. Rachel & Elissa must hand-wash a basket of laundry, then find a place in the market to hang each article of clothing before they can continue racing.

"Who wants a rolex?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must claim a shopping list from a vendor at a marked stall, then purchase each item on the list around Owino Market to get ingredients for a rolex. Once they have purchased all the ingredients, they must make a rolex to the satisfaction of the rolex vendor to receive their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must make their way to the Ggaba landing site near Lake Victoria and search for village boat builders, who would give teams their next clue.

Choice A: Salty Roll
Teams must transport a wheelbarrow filled with Nile perch to a workstation, then learn how to salt and roll the fish skin. Once they have washed, gutted, and salted a barrel of fish, they would receive their next clue.

Janelle & Britney and Rachel & Elissa chose this task.


Choice B: Move the Pole
Teams must load firewood onto a bicycle to transport them to a storage area, where they must properly stack the wood following a finished example. Once they have stacked enough firewood up to a specified height, they would receive their next clue.

Becca & Floyd, Chris & Bret, Colin & Christie, Leo & Jamal, Nicole & Victor, and Tyler & Korey chose this task.

Teams must make their way to Jahazi Pier, where they must compete against each other to correctly stack four sets of colored Ngoma drums, no more than four drums high and not moving more than one drum at a time, similar to a Tower of Hanoi puzzle. Once they think they are finished, they must grab the ox's tail in front of the band leader. The team that wins the match may check in to the nearby Pit Stop, while the team that loses must then wait for another team to compete against. Team members can switch between matches, with only one member allowed to physically move the drums, though their partner may help by giving verbal instructions. The team that loses the final heat will be eliminated.

The battles are in order, with the winners in bold:

For checking in first, Tyler & Korey won a trip for two to Singapore, provided by Travelocity.
