      About this trip

      What you can expect to see and do: 

      Our Desert Escape Road Trip retreat will take you across four cities and you’ll come to truly feel the difference between a traveler and a foreigner. Forget the ‘chi chi frou frou’ instagrammable, romanticized Morocco everyone longs for. We want you to connect with our traditional North African culture. Yes there will be breathtaking Riyads, luxurious palaces and Souqs (market places) but what makes Morocco so unique is the warmth of its people and the blend of African, Arab and Berber heritage.  

      Our Desert Escape Tour will be a unique 8 day road trip across various cities. Marrakech,  Warzazate, Ait Ben Haddou, Merzouga desert and Todra Gorges.. If you dig a genuine experience; bring a book, a pillow or lover, a friend, podcasts, a set of dominoes and your sense of adventure. 

      Travel with heart open and spirit ready, travel Burgundy Roots!

      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.


      I have nothing but good things to say about Wafa and Burgundy Roots. The week leading up to the trip there was an unexpected hurricane that hit Jamaica, causing damage to our hotel. In a couple of days Wafa figured out the situation and set us up with a new hotel and handled the entire situation with grace. Even though she was hit with a difficult situation she still managed to make the trip an unforgettable one. I made some amazing friendships and was pleasantly surprised at all of the excursions. They were very wholesome experiences. Inshallah I can’t wait for the next trip!!

      I had a great time, nice people, the stush in the bush experience was well worth the journey, amazing food! Hotel accommodation was good too.

      I recently had the pleasure of traveling with Burgundy Roots, and I am beyond impressed with the experience. From start to finish, they honored their word, consistently delivering more than they promised. Their attention to detail and commitment to providing an exceptional travel experience truly set them apart. My time in Jamaica was nothing short of amazing, thanks to Burgundy Roots. They carefully curated an itinerary that showcased the beauty and culture of the island, making every moment memorable. The guides were knowledgeable, friendly, and went out of their way to ensure we had a fantastic time. I cannot wait to embark on more adventures with Burgundy Roots in the future, inshallah. If you're looking for a travel company that underpromises and overdelivers, look no further. Burgundy Roots is the real deal!

      This was my first trip with Burgundy Roots and I had an amazing time travelling around the beautiful island of Zanzibar with the BR team and the wonderful people in my travel group. Wafa and her team put in a lot time, care and effort to curate a well planned and organised trip for us from the accommodation, to the excursions and places that we visited. There was also a good balance of day trips and free days to go exploring by ourselves or to just relax on the beach. I enjoyed every part of the trip and we also had the opportunity to support locally owned businesses in a small but meaningful way with the help of Wafa and her team which I really appreciate. If you’re thinking of visiting Zanzibar I would definitely recommend booking with Burgundy Roots.

From start to finish, the trip was impeccably planned, offering a perfect mix of adventure and relaxation. Each day was filled with new and exciting activities, from exploring the stunning beaches to embarking on thrilling excursions that truly showcased the beauty of Zanzibar. The group dynamic was fantastic, and I formed deep and lasting friendships with fellow travelers. The sense of connection was truly special, making the journey even more memorable. The accommodations were comfortable, and the guides were knowledgeable and always willing to go the extra mile to ensure we had a great time. Overall, this trip was a 10/10 experience, and I can't wait to join another adventure with this tour group. If you're looking for an unforgettable travel experience that combines adventure, relaxation, and wonderful company, I highly recommend this tour group for your next trip to Zanzibar. BIG THX to you Wafa and Nasriya xx Beyza from Germany

      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.

      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.
