Most statements in this satirical essay are directly quoted or referenced from real events (though a few are from other pieces of satire; can you spot them?). In particular: Louise Linton’s memoir about her year in Zambia; Mindy Budgor’s memoir about becoming the “first” female Maasai warrior; a couple’s colonial-themed wedding in South Africa; a travel vlogger’s recount of his time in Namibia; Taylor Swift’s music video for “Wildest Dreams”; the shooting of Cecil the Lion in Zimbabwe; and most recently, Josephine Johansson’s Instagram post about her time in Nairobi, Kenya.
