Is this a good city for single people? For couples? For families? Why or why not?

More of a family post. - May 2021

Ideal for families with young children. Social scene may be quiet for singles, but if you love the outdoors... lots to do, and there are many hardcore safari/camping opportunities that would be difficult with kids. older kids might find the class sizes and range of activities small... - Feb 2020

I would say it’s good for most, but the majority of people in the expat community seem to have elementary aged kids, so it may feel isolating if you don’t fit into that demographic. - Feb 2019

This is a family post. There are family friendly activities EVERYwhere. I think couples without children will have to look for fun. This isn't really the scene for singles. No DC or NY style HH after work. - Apr 2018

Not great for singles because there are few to hang out with. Nice for families and couples because restaurants are very kid-friendly. - Sep 2017

It is not a city. It is a big village. Probably good for all with main attractions the nice climate, space, and outdoor type of activities. - Jul 2017

It's a good city for anyone. Families will appreciate that there are lots of fun activities to do with kids, singles and couple will enjoy socializing, going out and making friends here. - Apr 2016

Wonderful for families. Good for couples. OK for singles, but this is not a big city: the night life is limited. - Dec 2013

This is a great city for families, a tad quiet for young (20's) couples and singles. - Jul 2013

There are a lot of families here, and most people like the school. There is a lot to do around Zim on the weekends -- safaris, hiking, camping, golfing. People are very social here as well. - Jun 2009
