It looks like filming for The Grand Tour’s latest adventure for 2024 has begun and fans can’t seem to hold their horses. Zimbabwe?
Some good news has arrived from Jeremy Clarkson’s latest Instagram post captioned “Good to be back.” The image of the famous trio- James May, Richard Hammond, and Clarkson himself seems to have dropped a huge hint of The Grand Tour’s next adventure for 2024 and we can’t wait to receive further updates.
The Clarkson’s Farm star has shared a snap in the Eastern Highlands alongside Grand Tour co-hosts Richard Hammond and James May from the set of their latest special. May and Hammond could be seen standing beside their co-host with three classic cars parked behind them. In the Zimbabwean episode, Clarkson, May, and Hammond have taken the wheel of a blue Lancia Montecarlo, a purple 1974 Triumph Stag, and a yellow Ford Capri RS3100.
While the 63-year-old didn’t reveal where they were filming, eagle-eyed fans almost unanimously managed to identify where the trio have headed to.
“You have no idea how happy you just made Zimbabwe – so excited,” one fan weighed in while a second echoed: “Looks like Zimbabwe.”
The Jeremy Clarkson return to Zimbabwe comes as the popular Amazon motoring show gears up for its fifth season, following a hiatus since 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This Zimbabwe excursion isn’t the first time the former Top Gear stars have explored Southern Africa. Clarkson has previously filmed Top Gear episodes in Botswana and Mozambique. Moreover, The Grand Tour has ventured into Namibia and South Africa for some of its exciting episodes.
In April of this year, Clarkson thrilled Zimbos when he visited a gift shop in Victoria Falls, sharing his mission to find a present for his newborn granddaughter, leaving the staff astonished.
Well, Victoria Falls is where they might be headed next. An advertisement in the local Chronicle newspaper on Thursday said the Victoria Falls Bridge on the border with Zambia – famous for bungee jumps – will be closed for an hour on September 30.
