The 7th leg of the race kicks off with teams heading to Harare, Zimbabwe and will head to a Rhino sanctuary where they learn they will build a tent and sleep overnight in the sanctuary. The order of which teams complete their tent will have an impact on the rest of the leg.
Phil wakes up the sleeping teams at 4 am to announce a partner swap, which they will race as until further notice.
Meet the new teams:
Jessica (Kristi) and Cody (Jen)
Lucas (connor) and Brittany (Alex)
Henry (Eric) and Evan (Daniel)
The new teams will use a raft to search small islands for their next clue, which leads them to a poacher watch tower for a detour: Rhino Track or Bushwhack
In Rhino Track, teams will search for poaching evidence to get their next clue. In Bushwhack, teams will follow an off road trail and bring water rangers in order to get their next clue.
Completing the detour sends teams to the Savannah Plains Overlook, the pitstop for this leg of the race.
So who arrived first and who is heading home…. no one! Phil hands them their next clue as partner swap is over and they are still racing. Lucas and Brittany/ Connor and Alex arrive first and head to Harare. Once there, teams are faced with a double U-Turn: Cody and Jessica and Evan and Henry are both U-Turned before the detour: Handle With Care or Just Get It There.
In Handle with Care, teams will pick up and deliver mail in a mall to get their next clue. In Just Get It There, teams must deliver two tires by rolling them through a market to get their next clue.
Completing the detour sends teams to Gardens to learn a Zimbabwean song and perform it for their next clue, a pedestrian mall, the pitstop for this leg of the race.
