Morale among expats:

Morale among expats is largely good due to quality of life. Every weekend includes a braai (bbq) at someone's house with friends. - Jul 2013

Varies wildly. Harare is great living -- great housing, lots of social events among expats, good eating. However, it's also very isolating, given the lack of internet and the high cost to fly out of Zimbabwe. You have to fly out via Jo'burg, and that is about $400-500. Flying to Cape Town is about $600-700 -- hardly reasonable for a weekend trip. By comparison, I've flown to Europe for $1100. There is a lot to do in-country, but everywhere you go, people will beg and bemoan the political and economic collapse of this once-great country. It's emotionally draining after a while. - Jun 2009
