The teams continue their journey in Africa, proceeding to a water tower in the Sanyuko Village. Some teams have trouble finding the water tower, initially heading to another, but once there, all take part in a Detour. The choice is Carry It or Milk It, which involves either carrying baskets filled with food and water using only your heads, or milking goats until you've filled a ten-ounce cup. Most teams choose to milk the goats, but one team gives a skilled performance on the basket-carrying and is able to finish quickly. The teams continue onward to a Roadblock, one suffering some major problems with their vehicles along the way. The Roadblock, which involves driving through crocodile-infested waters and then removing logs, also proves confusing for some teams. In the end, one team is unable to recover from an initial mistake and is eliminated, despite an amusing plea to stay in the race.

The Amazing Race is an adventure reality show hosted by Phil Keoghan that pits 10, 11, or 12 teams of 2 or 4 people against each other in a race around the world for approximately 40 days. In a leg, they go to destinations where they will complete a roadblock, a task where 1 person completes (Season 1-7) or 2 people (Season 8), a detour, where you have to decide between two tasks that are usually opposite of each other, and a miscellaneous task.
After they complete all these tasks, they will be directed to go to a Pit stop where they will have a 24 hour rest period where they will be able to eat, drink, sleep, and mingle with other teams. The last team to check into the Pit Stop usually is eliminated, but sometimes there is a non-elimination leg in which no one is eliminated. After all teams are eliminated except for 3, these three race to the finish line where the winning team wins 1 million dollars.
