Teams will be driven to the town of Swakopmund, where they must find the Swakopmunder Buchhandlung, where they will buy a the Allgemeine Zeitung containing their next clue.

Teams must drive themselves to the Ground Rush Adventures Skydiving Club in Dorob National Park to find their next clue.

At the Ground Rush Adventures Skydiving Club, Aly & Steve would receive their clue for their Speed Bump.

Aly & Steve have to make six toy planes from repurposed soda cans and assemble them properly, before they are allowed to continue.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to watch a briefcase drop from an airplane and retrieve it on foot, traveling nearly a mile to the marked area. After locating the briefcase, they walked to a hilltop to pick up the Travelocity Roaming Gnome and reunite with their partner at the starting point to open the briefcase with the clue inside.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must drive themselves to Snake Bend Pan to find their next clue.

Choice A: Work
Teams must help locals drag five tires attached to their marked vehicles to smooth 5 miles of bumpy dirt road to the foreman's satisfaction. Once the task was complete, the foreman will hand them their next clue.

Hayley & Blair, Laura & Tyler, and Mike & Rochelle chose this task.

Choice B: Play
Teams must cross-country sand ski through a series of sand dunes up a marked course, and then slide down on a sand board to Henrik May at the bottom, who will give them their next clue.

Aly & Steve, Jelani & Jenny, and Matt & Ashley chose this task.

Jelani & Jenny used their Express Pass to bypass the Play Detour.

Teams must travel on foot down the road to find the U-Turn board and their next clue.

At Snake Bend Pan, teams would have the option to U-Turn a team, with two slots available. Matt & Ashley used the first slot of the U-Turn on Jelani & Jenny. Laura & Tyler used the second slot of the U-Turn on Aly & Steve.

Since Jelani & Jenny used their Express Pass on the Play Detour, they would be forced to backtrack and complete the Work Detour before continuing.

Since Aly & Steve completed the Play Detour, they would be forced to backtrack and complete the Work Detour before continuing.

Teams must drive themselves to Moon Valley Landscape and find Goanikontes Oasis to check in, with one of four animals (camel, donkey, oryx, or zebra) in tow.

For coming in first place, Laura & Tyler won a trip for two to Queenstown, New Zealand.
