@PhilKeoghan
After 12 hr flight picked up our bags to discover they were covered in fishy water, some guy thought his fish would stay frozen, guess not!

2:04 PM - 24 Nov 12 · web (North American Central Time)

From his tweet, we can tell the length of the flight and also that he is tweeting from at least a laptop or a fixed location (make it seems that he is not on the run -connecting to any more flights, maybe-)

Flying from HKG to JNB at 550 MPH steady, turns out to be 11 hours and 57 minutes of strictly airborne flight time.

Xarles,

You forgot something. Flying into the jet stream east to west adds time to a flight. The actual time for SA287 HKG JNB was 13 hours 25 minutes.

A sighting in Maun, Botswana? It could be either TAR Norway or TAR 22. I just started looking so there may be more.

Jesse ‏@JesseMolatlhwe
S/O to your boy Jesse yea! RT @thatChelseaGuy: They're shooting an episode of the amazing race here. Let me go look cool on tv.
3:59 AM Pacific Standard Time  - 25 Nov 12
About 45 minutes ago

Godfrey CL Matale ‏@inFamOusCL1
@JesseMolatlhwe yo The guy talking about the amazing race where is he, is he in Bots?

Godfrey CL Matale ‏@inFamOusCL1
First I missed the amazing race while It was in Cape Town Now Maun. Wow we cute guys never catch a break!!
4:16 AM Pacific Standard Time- 25 Nov 12
About 30 minutes ago


The person making the sighting doesn't mention where he saw them, but his other tweets do mention Maun, so the second person's assumption that the sighting was in Maun seems reasonable.

I was thinking they would have had charter flights to get to Maun, but a little research shows 2 flights daily from Johannesburg to Maun. One arrives at 1:20 PM and the other at 1:25 PM. That is about 2 hours ago, so it fits. The flight from Hong Kong to Johannesburg arrived about 4 hours before the 11:40 AM and 11:45 AM departures, so that fits as well.

I was leaning towards this being TAR Norway, but the flights fits so well, I'm now thinking it's 50-50 as to whether it's TAR 22 or TAR Norway.

A little research shows a number of safari outfits and game reserves in the Maun area, so I'm thinking that will be involved.

Here's another possible sighting, this time next door to Botswana in Windhoek, Namibia.

Simasiku Matengu ‏@Simplysiku
You know Kapana has made it big when you trying to dip in the spice and get bumped by contestants in the Amazing Race.
11:12 PM Pacific Standard Time - 25 Nov 12
About 9 hours ago


Kapana is grilled meat served with a tomato, onion, chili and spice sauce and fried bread called fat cakes. It is popular and sold by street vendors in Namibia.

It seems a bit early for TAR to have gone from Botswana to Namibia, but it is possible. It could also be that TAR Norway in one of the sightings from the last 2 days and TAR 22 is in the other one. At this point, there's no clues as to which is which. My attempts to contact people have been ignored so far.

Update: This sighting was of TAR Norway 2.

These were posted on Fb a while back, I can't see anybody who posted it, but if someone did I apologise!

I'm pretty sure 4 teams of the Amazing Race were just on our same flight from Bali to Kuala Lumpur... Teams of 2 followed by cameramen and sound guys, and all they could tell us was that they were on a travel show for American television. Pretty sure Amazing Race. We'll have to wait for next season to find out.

Posted Nov 21 approx 7PM Malaysian time.

===

Just met some contestants of an American travel show. 4 teams of 2 were on our flight to kuala lumpur. I can't wait to watch next season of the amazing race because I have no idea what other show it would be. Cool I think so!

They were both posted at the same time, same place and the people look to be related, so I'd count it as one sighting :lol:

I thought I had seen this Botswana sighting from Facebook somewhere on RFF yesterday, but I can't find it now. So, I'm posting it. Since then there have been a few questions and responses.

TAR Sighting Person
Yesterday via mobile
wao! amazing race being ran in botswana

Friend 1 - kae
Yesterday at 2:11am

TAR Sighting Person - MUB dear
Yesterday at 2:20am

Friend 2 -  Ke race ya eng?
Yesterday at 3:10am via mobile

TAR Sighting Person -  tha 1 almys shwn on sabc 3
19 hours ago via mobile


I can't really translate this on Google, but it does appear to be mostly English, so I can figure most of it out. It appears that the person saw or was told about TAR in Maun, Botswana. Friend 1 asked where and the reply was MUB, the airport code for Maun, Botswana. Friend 2 seems to be asking what version and the answer was the version shown on SABC 3, which I believe is the South African TV network. SABC has been showing an earlier season of the American TAR lately from the tweets I've seen over the past couple of months. I doubt they have shown TAR Norway. Assuming that the person can tell the difference between Americans speaking English and Norwegians speaking English, I think this points towards TAR 22 being in Botswana and not TAR Norway. It's not anywhere close to conclusive proof, but it's a little more than we knew up until now.

We're in Botswana!

From private blog on NOV 25/2012 in Maun, Botswana:

...the short flight from Jo’burg to Botswana had contestants and camera crew for The Amazing Race season 22 in the front few rows. We all talked to the contestants and although they weren't supposed to say anything they gave us enough clues to work out what was going on. I gave the couple next to me some cash as they were pretty short, and XXXXX helped the girls sitting next to him with detailed instructions for where to go as soon as they got off the plane. We watched them all line up on the runway and then run off, but of course saw them again three minutes later at the queue for immigration....

OK, I did some more digging and found a few Facebook sightings from Maun, Botswana. I'm convinced now that some version of TAR was there for the last few days. I'm also thinking it's very likely that it's TAR 22 and not TAR Norway, but no one has quite spelled it out. I'm thinking that it would have been mentioned if they were speaking Norwegian and I'm guessing the Norwegian version doesn't have the budget for the Hummer mentioned below.

TAR Witness
Wow, Bots recognized, a certain reality TV show is been shot right in front of me at Maun International Airport and Mack Air Offices. I'm wondering where are these guys going from here. They are couples traveling together with each couple followed by 2 Camera crews. Somebody remind me of the name, Please <Friend 2>, you know it and watch it

The same person posted yesterday

TAR Witness
Monday at 10:55pm ·

    and the race continues, Amazing race or the travel show as they told. Met one couple today as i was walking down the dirty road and they had to find the Mokoro Station. Poor people, always with camera crew. Jus gave them direction to the Mokoro Station and they refused to tell me the name of the show. Good luck Guys


This Facebook post sounds like it's probably TAR related.

I'm guessing the Hummer was brought in to move equipment around the area, which is a swampy river delta region.

I checked out Mokoro Station and it seems to be the starting point for dugout canoe tours of the shallow waterways of the Okavango River Delta. Here's a couple of links to pictures of Mokoro canoes. The second was taken earlier today, but doesn't appear to be TAR related.

From reading a couple of blogs, they may see herds of elephants, hippoes, giraffe, zebras, kudus, antelopes, and buffaloes. Should be very scenic.

Also, in a moment of extreme synchronicity, Google maps announced a few hours ago that street level mapping of Botswana is now on line, including the Okavango River Delta where TAR 22 was seen.
