      About this trip

      We're delighted to host Ustadha Iffet Rafeeq in Jamaica! Throughout the week, she will be teaching her course 'The Seasons WIthin' helping women understand and master their menstrual cycle, sensuality and sexuality through an Islamic lens. 

      We’ll visit Kingston Central Masjid mosque, pray in peace, remember Allah, and enjoy an exquisite eight-course farm-to-table meal at Stush in the Bush organic farm. You’ll also have the opportunity to take in Jamaica’s unspoiled nature and swim in breathtaking waterfalls, beaches, and lagoons. We’ll hike up the famous Blue Mountains, where we’ll visit one of the island’s oldest Rasta communities and dissolve all ignorant misconceptions about the island and its proud people.

      This won’t be about all-day tanning, beachside braids, and gift shop Rasta hats (not that there’s anything wrong with that); we just want to rejuvenate you in a different way. After all, we travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us, right? We want to share the glory, struggles, and beauty of this island- a BEAST of an island, as you will find out!

      Please note that guest speakers can change due to unexpected circumstances. Burgundy Roots will guarantee optimum quality for its guest speakers. We ask for your flexibility and understanding.

      Burgundy signals magnificence. It appeals to our inner regality, stirring us to reclaim our best selves. In this spirit we invite you to experience more than an “Escape”. This is a path to enriching yourself while giving back to local communities. This is a chance to ground yourself in a graceful adventure and, through it, discover universal roots.


      The trip was an amazing experience. It was spiritually fulfilling and soul nurturing. Wafa and her team were absolutely amazing! They were so kind, and so helpful in every way. The locations they choose for us were filled with such beauty. The views were breathtaking and the activities were one of a kind. The experience will forever stay with me !

      It’s my second time in Jamaica with Burgundy roots, and it genuinely felt like the first. Same places, but different experiences. Wafa and her team always make sure all guests have a wonderful time. I did it twice, and would absolutely do it again. Al hamdoulilah for the amazing memories, thank you Burgundy roots!!!

      I had an amazing time on this tour with Wafa and Amira. While I didn't know much about Jamaica I quickly fell in love with the island, the people and of course the food! Thank you for introducing us to such a beautiful place and taking us to places that are less well known so that we can truly appreciate what this island has to offer. Being a part of people's passion projects always resonates differently and you can feel the effort and planning that's put into every element of the trip. This has been an experience that I won't forget anytime soon and I hope to go back again one day.

      I had a great time in Jamaica! I really enjoyed the authentic excursions and cultural experiences. We were very active and ate great food throughout the trip. Amira’s wellness activities were a great way to reset and refocus our self care. Thank you!

      I traveled with Wafa to do the Umrah... That was such a good experience. This trip is definitely the best by far. She is so professional and a nice person. I definitely recommend it to everyone who wants an experience that could change their life in a good way, bring more love in their heart, a closer connection with God and the chance to meet extraordinary people.
      By Ibrahima W on 02 Jan, 2023
      I have been on two Burgundy roots trips so far and I must say, the itineraries are very well thought out. Wafa and her team pay attention to every detail and leave no stone unturned to ensure a truly unique, hands-off and stress-free experience for all attendees. You get to visit some hidden gems , spend time in nature, enjoy delicious food with amazing COMPANY and learn more about Islam while you’re at it. Such a beautiful, spiritually uplifting experience! BEST TRIP(S) EVER!

      Traveled with Burgundy Roots this summer to Jamaica and it was everything!!!! Wafa and her team were great! All the experiences and people I meet were a whole vibe. If you're thinking about traveling with them just do it, it will be so worth it.
