Stop shutting down desert camps in Merzouga

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!

Moroccan government demands closure of ALL desert camps in the Merzouga area. This idea was generated by several hotels in this region that push for it as they don't fill their occupancy and wish the camps to be gone.  However, these camps are sought by many travelers and are the main reason why they travel to desert and Southern Morocco. These camps have been in business for years, employ over 1000 local workers and pay taxes to the Moroccan government. They are the main stream of living for most locals.  The entire region of Southern Morocco will significantly loose business including hotels , restaurants and transportation services on the route to the Sahara. Also no one in the government seems to care about the tourist that already paid for their vacation that will be ruined now. Please sign the petition to help us to stop the closure and keep the desert camps open.
