Teams jet from Brazil to Cape Town, South Africa, where they must overcome cultural challenges and their own deepest fears to avoid elimination.
Nine teams make the treacherous journey from the jungles in Brazil to South Africa, where they must interact with locals at harbor and township communities. One team sleeps past its departure time while another must decide whether to awaken the rival team; one team helps another but falls behind, and several must overcome major obstacles en route to Cape Town. A third team is eliminated.
The order of departure from the Jungle Camp are as follows:
Teams must fly to Cape Town, South Africa via São Paulo and find the Robben Island prison, and search for "Section B Cell 5" – President (Nelson Mandela's prison cell) for 18 years – to retrieve the next clue.
The Fast Forward instructions were given to them after finding their clue in Mandela's cell.
The Fast Forward required teams to find the Mooiberge Strawberry Field in Stellenbosch. Once there, the teams were required to look inside a "Zebra", (actually a large zebra-shaped scarecrow) to find the Fast Forward pass. This option did not appear on air as no team selected it.
Choice A: Dance
Teams had to put on a costume and sing and dance with a local troupe until they made R25 in tips. Once the team had accomplished this task, the troupe leader took the money and gave the team the next clue.
Choice B: Deliver
Teams had to carry fish from a boat and transfer it to the marked scales. Once they had transferred 125 kg (276 lb) of fish, the fishmonger gave the team the next clue.
Teams must take a train, then taxi to Langa and find the Paradise Hair Salon.
One team member had to search through the Langa township to buy a box of Epsom salts and a "Smiley" (a local name for a roasted sheep's head). After finding the items, they then had to deliver the Smiley as an offering to Ndaba Sangoma, who made a bitter potion out of the salts which the team member had to drink to receive the next clue.
The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:
- Blake & Paige

Peggy & Claire fell too far behind the other teams and were directed after going to the Robben Island prison to go straight to the Pit Stop.
Teams must make their way to Lanzerac Manor, a 300-year-old manor in the South African wine country.
