HEALTH & SECURITY IN MOROCCO
We have traveled tens of thousands of kilometres in Morocco so we can confirm from our own experience that Morocco is a very safe country, which is at least in line with the European security average. Be friendly, relaxed and respect the local culture and you will not have any problems. For the entry to Morocco no vaccination is necessary. When eating on the street you should be careful especially with raw salads, tap water and fresh juice. This may cause diarrhea or stomach upset in sensitive people. Well cooked food is safe. The food offered at the festival is hygienically prepared especially for foreigners. At the festival there will be an ambulance tent for medical emergencies.
In Morocco there is a very good mobile internet connection. Mainly 4G LTE with 69% coverage (Germany has 65% in comparison). Of course in the high mountains and in the deep desert there are some places with bad connection. For your visit in the desert and merzouga we strongly recommend you maroc telecom. This is the only provider with a good mobile internet connection in the secluded festival area. The price for 1 GB data volume is about 10 MAD (~1€). You can buy a top-up (recharge) code for your mobile at almost any kiosk. For top-up maroc telekom wifi connection call or send message to 555CODENUMBER*3
