Emoya Estate is a luxury game reserve and spa in South Africa that houses a controversial side attraction on its grounds—a fake shantytown that allows rich guests to pretend to be poor...for fun.
Mocked by Stephen Colbert as "poverty porn," the resort's fabricated informal settlement bears a few of the characteristics of actual shantytowns that millions of poverty-stricken people around the world are forced to live in, including outdoor toilets and corrugated iron huts.
But the hardship is kept to a clean, palatable level for the resort's luxury tourists, as these spotless "shacks" have heated floors, WiFi, and walls that are waterproof.
Emoya Estate's website boasts, "The shanty town is ideal for team building, braais [barbecues], fancy theme parties and an experience of a lifetime."
Because nothing screams "festive" like a party themed with abject poverty, hunger, and extreme social disadvantage.
