    The six remaining teams continue racing through Tanzania's Ngorongoro Crater, with knowledge of an impending Double U-Turn, as well as a Speed Bump for Nary & Jamie. Directed to the Hillary Clington stall in Karatu, a Detour awaits: wait in a long line to fill nine large jugs to deliver a family's "Water Supply", or repair a flat bicycle tire and fill it with the correct "Air Supply". Moving on to the Jack Stelzer Pub, the Double U-Turn tempts racers prior to directions to the Gem Gallery and Arts store, where the Speed Bump forces Nary & Jamie to set up an outside art vending kiosk. The clue there points teams to Margaret's Farms in Mto Wa Mbu and the Roadblock, where racers have to harvest 500 grams of honeycomb. Successfully completing the Roadblock gives the location of the Pit Stop: Lake Manyara.

    The six remaining teams set off from an esplanade alongside the Caspian Sea in Baku, Azerbaijan and fly to Kilimanjaro, Tanzania. Once there, teams race to get on charter flights to Ngorongoro Crater, where they have to find a Masai warrior; he offers a Detour choice of testing your "Marksmanship" by hitting a clay target with a rungu or performing a "Courtship" jumping ritual for a minute in the thin air. Completion of either directs teams to the Simba A camp. On arrival, teams must build a safari tent and shower so after checking in with Phil at the Pit Stop, they can stay the night.

Completing the training sends teams to the Old Town of Baku and the Toghrul Karabakh carpet shop. A Detour there forces the choice of searching through an old Soviet car to find the one "Apple" among hundreds that has a race flag or going to the Naftalan Health Center and scraping crude "Oil" off a gentleman who's undergone a spa treatment common in the country. Completion points teams to the Pit Stop at an Esplanade alongside the Caspian Sea.
