Morale among expats:

Fair. Those who absolutely love Africa, the bush, and safaris (and have the paycheck and time off to enjoy it) love it here. Those who love big-city life, dining out, and cultural opportunities (art, museums, music), don't. Morale at the Embassy is not high. - Jul 27, 2013
I think high for families. Most find this a dull post, though, and singles on my staff suffered. For us, it was very high! - Apr 22, 2013
Morale is pretty good. I would call it excellent among people who are ok with small town life and/or outdoor enthusiasts. The only expats who are truly unhappy here can't live without a bigger city with more nightlife and social opportunities. - Jun 6, 2010
