It is opening this week in London, and has already has broken the box office record in Mandela's homeland of South Africa. It was sixteen years in the making; so much in the rainbow nation has changed that filmmakers had to find new locations for iconic sites like the infamous shanty-town of Soweto, where middle-class housing and shopping malls have replaced many of the dusty streets where Mandela once walked. Now imagine a world where you can experience the old Soweto – complete with central heating, optional breakfast and Wi-Fi. Emoya Luxury Hotel and Spa – a five-star game resort some 250 miles from the real Soweto – is offering a safe and sanitized shanty town experience for its wealthy tourist trade.
