This work is a parody on the post-colonial safari and on the institution of the grand tour, a well-established social ritual for the wealthy to make excursions into the unknown, to escape their ennui and inform themselves of the ‘other’ in its natural state.  To be taken for a ride implies being conned or deceived, not fully understanding a situation you are part of. It implies believing one is the rider in a position of control, but when the legs underneath are revealed, the situation is not what it was perceived to be.
