I was hoping you could help me with some information on Victoria Falls. I have been searching online and the information is quite limited because it's all based on tourism, which I completely understand, but unfortunately doesn't fit my searching needs! From your About Us page I gather you are living in SA but go to Vic Falls quite often? My boyfriend is opening up a fishing tourism company in Vic Falls, I am currently living in the States but am a South African/American citizen, and he would like me to move there and I am just trying to gather as much non-bias information that I can. The last time I was in Vic Falls was around January 2007 and as we know things have even worsened in Zim since then and I really just worry about moving there, which I am sure you can understand. I understand that life in VF is a bit different and there are more options there then the rest of Zimbabwe but I was wondering if you could help me to the degree of that. When I was there last it was so quick, literally a day, and so I didn't even see much of the town and I was wondering if you feel there is anything there for non-tourists? Do you feel you can live a relatively normal life? I mean I know I can't expect a pristine Woolies but how are the super markets or are there even super markets and just little shops? You are always hearing reports that Zimbabwe shops have no stock and I know VF has restaurants but one can't eat out all the time! Anyway, I know the ability to living in a country or city/town is very personal and depends on the person but I was hoping you could give me a feel for what you think the state of VF is in.
Hope to hear from you soon!

I really am not sure how difficult it is to get residency at the moment, but I would imagine quite difficult, depending on your color and your status. This should all change in time with the new government, but nothing is going to happen over night.
I would try and get hold of the Zim Embassy in the USA Let me know if we can be of any further help.
