It is an emotional day for the boys as they realize how much they miss their families back home. Arriving safely in Egypt the team are reunited again when David and Jimmy meet them at the border. Riding through Egypt there is still doubt as to whether they will make it to Aswan in time for the ferry. They are starting to feel the strain of the long days on the bikes, if they don't make it in time they will have to wait for a week before they can continue with the trip. This will delay them hugely and put pressure on their relationships. Ewan and Charley visit the pyramids in Cairo and are extremely lucky to have a private guided tour. They are fascinated with the architecture and amazed at their structure. The boys take a detour from their trip and fly down to Kenya to visit the charity called Riders for Health. Safely on the ferry they cross the border into Sudan and into the sweltering heat. Road conditions are poor and the bikes are put to the test, resulting in Ewan's shock absorber collapsing. After repairing Ewan's bike they are back on the rocky road but are soon brought to a grinding halt as Claudio the cameraman's shock absorber also gives in, leaving Charley and Ewan to venture alone, while Claudio's bike is taken to Khartoum to be repaired.
