What is the relative size of the expatriate community? How would you describe overall morale among expatriates?

Small to medium....morale is excellent, everyone is happy to be in Zimbabwe. We knew only one family that was dissatisfied because the spouse couldn't find employment. Really no one wants to leave that post. - Sep 30, 2017
Due to the economic situation the number of expats is decreasing but also some embassies have closed their doors recently. Morale is high as long as you are immune to how this country is being destroyed by its leaders, in my opinion. - Jul 6, 2017
Morale is very high. - Jul 5, 2017
Decent size and very diverse. If they make local friends and make an effort to discover Zimbabwean culture they love it, if they like to remain in an expat cocoon they hate it - Apr 16, 2016
Large expat community. Morale is high. You can socialize solely within the expat community--it's large enough for that--or you can ignore it and seek out Zimbabweans. Most expats do both. - Dec 8, 2013
Big -- lots of NGOs and UN agencies. - Jun 21, 2009
