      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.


      Had an amazing time, delicious food and great company. So grateful to have the opportunity to join groups like these and connect with so many beautiful people from around the world, with good vibes, good energy creating wholesome friendships 💕 Thank you for a lovely experience Wafa and co.

      If you're reading through reviews, take this one as your sign to book that Burgundy Roots trip NOW. Experiencing Jamaica was special but experiencing it through the carefully curated itinerary by Wafa was another level. The connections and relationships she's made throughout the years shows throughout the stay and make the whole trip a much more intimate and personal experience. From waterfalls and lagoons to hidden gems in the mountains and greenery, I honestly had the most amazing time. The food, the people, the city, the water - it was all just WOW and I wouldn't have experienced it the same without Burgundy Roots. Wafa is a whole vibe and that spreads through the group leaving international friendships forever. Can't wait to explore new places with Burgundy Roots soon come!

      This one of the best Jamaica vacation tours. Glad I took it in February, less heat and less mosquitos. Wafa at Burgundy roots, accommodated me at last minute for inclusion, so its never late to inquire. However, I would recommend saving some bucks by registering as early bird, or requesting additional discount. The tour offered mix of excursion activities & culinary experiences. They take us to the top rated food spots and views are always amazing up in the mountains. It rains a lot there so mostly cloudy but not bad. But activities are rain or shine. My best experience's were reach falls and rabbit hole jump, swimming in blue lagoon. While stush in the bush was bit extra experience as we were already having good food at all locations and the drive was very long ( I will skip that next time). During the tour visit Rasta camp(Christians who believe in space ships) and Bob Marley museum, and then also watch the Bob Marley movie (on your own, which just came out last month), will make it a great experience to learn the history of Jamica and Jamaican culture. Ya Maan !!, the vacation was great, hotels were nice. Made new friends from UK, USA and Canada.

      I wholeheartedly loved every minute of visiting Jamaica with Burgandy Roots. It was unlike any other trip. Wafa excels in making every guest feel welcomed as if she is inviting us into her own home. She shows you the places she loves and is deeply connected with. She creates an atmosphere for visitors to have the chance to consciously and ethically travel by supporting the local economy. And she genuinely gives so much to each guest and people she interacts with. I was in awe and blown away by every handcrafted trip she took us on. Each moment was filled with bonding and connecting with the land, culture and people. It’s also a trip unlike any other because everything is taken care of by the team. Go in with a trusting heart and experience all the joy Jamaica has to bring within the safety and curated beauty that she has organized. What also impressed me was that I came back home truly rejuvenated from our time there and made friends that I will remember for a lifetime. We traveled through the country with heartfelt intentions and blessing. I would encourage all my loved ones to go on a Burgandy Roots trip insha’Allah.

      I had a marvelous time! Wafa is a great trip curator who knows Jamaica like the back of her hand. There was lots of opportunity to enjoy nature, accompanied with extensive hikes, walks, and swimming outdoors, which made for a trip that was equal parts fun, healthy, and rejuvenating! There was also excellent food with the chance to enjoy local delights like jerk chicken, curry goat, patties, and tropical fruits. However, the best part of the trip was having the opportunity to meet new people and form meaningful bonds over laughs and deep conversations over the course of the week. I’m already thinking of my next trip with Burgundy Roots!

      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.
