Product Description

Another expedition for Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. This time around, our intrepid explorers take on the task of finding the source of the Nile in three barely roadworthy estate cars. After surmounting the worst that the local hotels and traffic jams can throw at them, the dynamic trio set off into the heat of the African sun, taking dense forests, the ferocious wildlife, and wheel-sucking mud in their stride - well, almost.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Top Gear Special ever!!!! 5 Nov 2013
By Richie
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When I watched this special on TV I knew I would have to get it on DVD. The Top Gear boys have done some funny and great adventure specials before but I found this one really good. The DVD has extra deleted scenes unseen on TV.
A worthy buy if you enjoy Top Gear.

By Seven Ragged Tigers TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Here's 1500 chaps,go and buy a second hand estate car,and then meet up in Uganda.Your mission,should you choose to accept it,find the true source of the river Nile.And so,armed only with their wits,and the usual levels of incompetence,Jezza,Hamster and Captain Slow go blundering about in the hope of going where no motoring show has gone before.

So as you can see its business as usual for the Top Gear Trio,bickering their way across Africa,in three cars totally unsuited for the challenge.But that somehow rise how rise to the occasion,as do the boys themselves.There are plenty of laughs to be had along the way,including,thanks to the 12 certificate,language you wouldn't normally expect(it was beeped out on the BBC),and yes it is Jezza who is responsible.After the widely criticized India Special,this one sees them back on top form,and doing what they do best,Top Gear fans are going to love this one.There are some good deleted scenes,pity there isnt a play all selection,but if that is all I can find to complain about,show you just how good the African Adventure really is.

If anyone thought Top Gear was running out of steam,this proves that its as good as ever.So sit back and enjoy 114 minutes of brilliant entertainment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not 150,000 super cars, but 1,500 cars 23 Nov 2013
By JJW3
Format:Blu-ray
For me this is by far the best adventure they have done. Its just every car and driving enthusiasts dream.... To buy a few old cars and go on a road trip across somewhere like Africa.

These adventures where they buy old bangers and damage each others cars on purpose are so much better than when they go on a road trip in cars worth hundreds of thousands of pounds, like this one where they modified their cars too suit their journey. I would rather go across Africa in a banger with my mates than go across Europe in a Ferrari because i would have more of a laugh.

As is the way with Top Gear most of it is put on purposely for entertainment, but that doesn't make it any less funny. I really hope they can continue to come up with epic adventures like this, they truly do have the best job in the world.

Even though these are shown on the DAVE channel quite often, its nice to own your own copy and build a collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars The nutters are at their best here.
Bought for my son, and he hasn't stopped laughing yet. Its one of their best. I'm not sure if its meant to be comedy, but it is very funny, and typical of the Top Gear team.
