I believe during the All stars season or Season 5 not sure which one a leg in Malawi was planned and axed in the last minute.

I did look into the opportunities over on the transport thread. They can pretty easily get to J-burg if that is the next leg destination. Also they could go back to NBO and get to Europe if that is where they are headed.
Physics alone is not enough.

Those who forget history are sure to repeat it.

All Stars, but it was Tanzania.

The All Stars flight fiasco was in Mozambique- accordign to the Guidos, production didn't check the local calendars and what should have normally been fairly uncrowded flights were slammed with every affluent Mozambiquan family trying to get out of the country for either school holidays or the Hadj pilgrimmage. (large Muslim population there.) Eventually everyone ended up in Zanzibar, Tanzania after the most blatant hours of operation bunch in TAR history- Charla and Mirna with the 'conditions too hazardous for the boat ride' delay, even though the water at the time was utterly flat and was actually rougher the following day when the Chas caught up with them.

As long as production knows their school and religious holidays, I can't see a repeat of that chain of events.

Last I looked Dar-Es-Salaam and Zanizbar Island were both in Tanzania. What got axed was a planned pit stop only in the Arusha area so teams could have flown out of Kilimanjaro International Airport there. That was relocated back to Stone Town after the fiasco with Hajj pilgrims tying up all the flights out of Maputo.

I recall that 2 teams did connect through Malawi in AR11, Ian and Teri and Joe and Bill.

A trip down the Luangwa would be fantastic to see! I've trekked down it myself, albeit on the Zambia side and can safely say there will be no shortage of fantastic scenery, though there isn't exactly a lot of practical things to do for tasks along the way!

If you are interested there are pictures of Malawi up on the facebook page of Land & Lake Safaris and there is absolutely stunning views which include beaches.

As far as possible European destinations go, I think we can safely rule out Greece. The protexts over the EU austerity plan have become sufficiently chaotic that I wouldn't deem it safe for the teams or production.

I'm kind of surprised that TAR is working with a tobacco company in Malawi but the Limbe Leaf website (shown in the Live Sightings thread) shows them to be doing "social responsibility" work - raising trees for farmers to plant and donating supplies to children, that sort of thing. That could be the tie-in here. We may see TAR help build a school or something like that. That might mean staying an extra day here to give something back to Malawi.

Or maybe they will just go to a warehouse and count bundles of tobacco.  :lol:

Schistosomiasis (also known as Bilharzia) is present in most lakes and rivers in Malawi, including Lake Malawi. The Department of State recommends against swimming, wading or bathing in fresh water.

This page lists the Limbe facility (as well as other tobacco firms) at the Kanengo industrial park north of town. The teams might be processing tobacco, or they could just be shuffling stuff around for the auction floor. Some background here.

I found this posted on a Fb page a few days ago and sent to Peach.  She suggested to post it (hope this is the right spot!) to see if anyone in that area might know if it's something relevant to maybe ES .. or just a local thing.  Thanks.  :)

"Amazing Race in Baguio City! :D

am sooo happy!"

And she posted it sometime on Saturday .. July 2nd.

i don't know if that's a part of TAR 19 or a rumor about the upcoming of The Amazing Race Philippines or just a hoax? :duno:

topaz,

The longest an amazing Race has done in one transportation leg is I think the Argentina to Moscow approximately 7000 miles in AR5. The thought of going from Europe to the Philippines, a bit further, is not credible at all.
