After hours of separation, they reunited on a the shores of the lake to spend the night. Their final day, their final push finding them in a swamp... that truly tests them.

Season 1, Episode 6
Benedict and Pasquale reach an uneasy truce as the explorers trek to Tabora, site of the Livingstone house. There, one of the team comes down with malaria--ironically, the same place where Stanley contracted it. This puts the future of the expedition entirely in question. They decide to continue, and the Expedition heads off toward an uncertain future, knowing any relapse could lead to their failure. Time is critical if they want to make Ujiji in 30 days. With one of the team ill and needing care, the balance of power changes, and the group is exhausted. They make camp, but must build fires to ward off the danger from hippos. After a decision to rest for a day, confrontations ensue. Two of the team get into a huge fight, putting team unity--and hope for a successful expedition--into shambles.

Season 1, Episode 5
The explorers arrive at the Bahi Swamp--despite its name, a harsh desert landscape. While there, they arrange to hire donkeys to help carry supplies for the next stage of the trip. The plan is to beat the heat by setting out at 4am, but things don't work out as planned. As the sun is hitting its peak, the explorers see the massive stretch of desert awaiting them: HOT--no shade, no protection and a long way to go. The philosophical divisions between some of the group manifest themselves in physical separations. When they all reunite, trouble brews. At camp later in a village, the team temporarily irons out their differences--but again, they seem to only patch things up on the surface. After two days of trekking across the swamp, the expedition runs into a massive incline they will have to climb. Again, arguments about how to proceed develop. When the team finally makes it to the top, a fight ensues. They may have made it through that leg of the expedition, but are they together?
