Nice place for a stroll

Take a felucca ride, and then stroll through Lord Kitchner's botanical plantings with plants from all the places he served while in the army.

We travelled over to the island in a traditional Felluca boat. This was a lot of fun and we really enjoyed the laid out gardens of the botanical island with many species of trees Id never heard of. small museum, very old. the stallholders were very pushy near to the end of the island where you go to rejoin your...

Can be a nice place to spend an afternoon as long as you don't pick a day when school kids are visiting on a class trip. The gardens are nicely maintained but not as diverse as many other conservatories.

No need to pre-plan Felucca tours or anything in Egypt for that matter as ask business is done in person for much more reasonable rates than you'll ever find online. Kitchner was very easy to get to on our Felucca ride on the Nile. Very well kept and peaceful

This is a small island that houses The Aswan Botanical Garden. While I wouldn’t put this on the “Must Do” list if you have the opportunity to spend a few hours it is a worthwhile felucca ride and restful change from the city. The gardens while cool were a little overgrown and unkempt. At times we were hassled by Nubian... More

Another beautiful Island. Loved meetings the locals and they were very welcoming in to their homes and small markets. It would be nice to make time to visit the small island, and appreciate their style of living.
