It's one of those perfect summer mornings as we head out on the trek to the secret location where Gordon Ramsay is filming the South African episode for the second season of Uncharted, writes Channel24's TV and Film Editor Leandra Engelbrecht.

In the new season Gordon explores seven new regions, each with vastly different culinary customs and history in order to learn from local experts. As he risks life and limb his mission is to achieve "edible excellence" as a student rather than a teacher. 

It's a long, bumpy ride over tough terrain and we hold on for dear life in the 4x4 safari vehicle.
