Hari, I don't think that they havn't hit the bottom so far. It will be getting worse...

Btw, today I got the latest edition of Travel Africa. Main feature is "Should you visit Zimbabwe?". The answer is a clear YES.

<"It may be that not every business in Zimbabwe is paying protection to the government, but given past experience, I think it's only a matter of time">

Thanks for answering, Celia.
Sorry if I sounded harsh but I do believe that when one is looking at such a fragile economy and making statements on a travel site, one should be careful and present only known facts rather than hypothosizing.

You earlier (upthread) statement said that the camp owners were giving pay-o-la to the thugs. I feel that this could be a pretty harmful statement to the many people who make their living on tourism - I just thought that that wasn't fair.
My apologies if I offended.
