Bottom Line:

After successive years of lockdowns and transport disruptions, the current winter is the first, since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, in which Morocco, Tunisia and Egypt’s tourism sectors are not bogged down by travel restrictions. Ideally, this would make 2023 the year in which tourism in North Africa returns to pre-pandemic levels. But recession in Europe, social unrest or security threats in any of these countries could push tourism sector revenues below expectations.
