About this trip

We invite you to centre your heart and re-connect with the order above. There is a concept in Ancient Greece  that states 'As above, so below'.  As we observe the order of the heavens we realize that the greatest gift of the stars is that they enable us to see order, and in turn, desire that order within our own souls.

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.


Travelling with Burgundy Roots is truly a unique and amazing experience. You can immediately feel the effort that Wafaa and the team have taken to curate specially chosen opportunities that would not typically be accessible / come to mind for the average traveler. Add to that the bonus of sharing the trip with wonderful souls from all over the world - it was definitely one to remember I would highly recommend Burgundy Roots for those who are seeking to travel with purpose - looking for a sustainable and fulfilling journey with immersion in the local culture. The added benefit of being with the group makes it especially ideal for those who may not be used to travelling - all you have to do is bring your luggage and good vibes and the rest is taken care of for you

I'm thinking back on this trip and missing it so much! When I went on this trip, I wished for an imaan boost, meeting new individuals, beautiful views, deep conversations. I can say that all my expectations have been met, and exceeded. I felt safe in the group. The group wasn't too big, you had time to get to know everyone on some level. The team were very helpful and professional. Thanks to Wafa's way of coordinating the trip from planning and interviews to catering and all the activities, this truly felt like a 5-star trip. I love that the trip had an Islamic dimension to it, the lectures with Mustafa Briggs were very interesting and subjects were carefully chosen. It was a very special feeling to be a part of the lectures and prayers. I remember thinking of the Hadith that describes how angels surrounds a group of muslims who gathers for the remembrance of Allah. There is a lot to say about how amazing this experience was. I would definitely recommend this trip to everyone who is looking for an amazing getaway. One week was the perfect amount of time. The food was amazing, the snack stops aswell

Going to Jamaica with Dr. Briggs and Wafa couldn’t have gone any better. I met many incredible individuals, each one with inspiring life stories. It was a great way to meet wanderlust souls from across the globe. The soul rebel trip was spiritually uplifting, physically and emotionally relaxing, and a great way to explore the Jamaican culture and heritage. Lastly, the food was amazing. Get out there and enjoy Jamaica with Burgundy Roots!

Being surrounded by like-minded people from all around the world who I can now call friends is an experience in itself. The late-night bonfire in Siwa, deep and fun conversations on the bus rides, the beautiful architecture of Cairo's mosques, the home-cooked food at the ecolodge, and the classes with Dr Butch Ware and Mustafa Briggs were only a few of the many unforgettable moments we got to experience and which I'll cherish forever! Anyone who is looking for a memorable experience abroad and for making friends of a lifetime shouldn't hesitate any longer to go with Burgundy Roots!

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.

The Prophetic Nutrition retreat in Jamaica was probably the best vacation I've ever been on. Wafaa and her team were incredible hosts whose carefully crafted and detail oriented itinerary provided a lifetime experience on the most beautiful island with the most beautiful locals. If you're thinking about joining Wafaa & the burgundy roots team on any of their travels, this is your sign. Go!! You will be planning your next retreat before it is even over! Much love to the team xo-
