Clarkson, Hammond, & May were back this week with another classic holiday special, this time in the beautiful country of Namibia, where they trek through the country in custom made beach buggies. The first part of the epic journey featured hauntingly beautiful desert scenery, ghostly shipwrecks, and plenty of seals!
*Spoiler Alert* We’ve compiled some of the best moments from the episode here for your viewing pleasure. Let us know what your favorite moments were in the comments, and be sure to like and share!
1- No Beer For Old Men
Hammond pulls a quick one on his thirsty cohorts this time. As the trio enjoys some freshly caught fish, Richard offers them all a beer and much to their dissatisfaction, there is none to be had. A joke which quickly turned Clarkson and May against the Hamster!
2- The Sea Approaches!
The boys cut it close as they double back on themselves in an attempt to find a path to their destination. Funny, exciting, and it keeps you on the edge of your seat. Another epic moment.
3- Hammond Dies, Well Almost
While the trio often jokes about killing one another, in this moment Clarkson seems genuinely concerned that his tiny friend may have finally bit the dust as his buggy veers over a massive dune crest. Rest assured he managed to survive somehow, but a harry situation nonetheless.
At last, after countless hours, massive dunes, almost getting caught up in the tide, and getting lost more than once, the boys actually succeed in crossing the desert and they find a road to civilization. James May literally dances from happiness. Enough said.
5- Left For Dead
Nearing the end of part 1, the trio of motoring hosts has finally reached their road and is headed to their next destination when in classic fashion one of them breaks down. This time it’s Clarkson who suffers a coolant loss and suspension issue. Continuing their dependable hi-jinks, instead of helping Clarkson, Hammond and May decide to leave their co-host to depend on the help of some passing stranger as they head off for a much-deserved beer.
