Africa tops tourism growth

Africa is leading the growth in world tourism, show figures from the World Tourism Organisation.

Morocco grew by 9.3% from January-August 2006, according to figures from the World Tourism Barometer, just released.

Rather than just visiting Morocco, why not buy your own home there? It's cheaper than you might think. High-quality, one-bed apartments at Marina Beach, in Smir, Tetouan, (pictured) cost from around £60,000.

The bathrooms come with a shower and a steam room with a radio in it. The Theme and Aqua Park is only a five minute drive away. Ask our team for more details or fill in our on line form.We are hear to help you.

The survey also showed that visitor numbers to sub-Sarahan Africa – including South Africa, Kenya, Mozambique, Swaziland and the Seychelles – grew by 12.6%.

Overall, tourism round the world rose by 4.5% to 578million arrivals from Jan-August, compared to the same period in 2005. Growth in 2007 is predicted to be 4%. Growth in tourism brings more opportunity for rental income through overseas property.

Asia and the Pacific was the worlds second fastest-growing region, up 8.3%, although the increase was due entirely to Asian countries, with Australasia seeing a decline.

The Middle East was up 6% and the World Tourism Organisation believes that by the end of the year, it will be up by 7.2%.

Europe also saw an increase of 3.1%. Northern Europe led the way with a 6% rise; the South/Mediterranean was up 4.6%; Western Europe rose 2.1% with Central and Eastern Europe down 0.1%.

There was little evidence of travel plans being cancelled as a result of terrorism threats, even to the UK. Arrivals increased 9.8% in August, when threats were at their height.

America was up by 2.5%, with big growth in Central America (+8.7%), South America (+8.1%) and the Caribbean (+5.1%). North America rose just 0.4%, in spite of the 4.3% growth in the USA. It was pulled down by Canada (-4.1%) and Mexico (-3.8%).

South and Central America benefited both from higher expenditures by US travellers and more arrivals from European tourists.
