I like a walk in the park as much as the next person, and this one is more scenic and interesting than most. However, in contrast to most other attractions on our Egyptian tour, the vendors started floating about as soon as we walked in (rather than after we finished) resulting in a less than relaxing visit. If you are... More

I paid a visit in August and the place is nothing I would consider to be a botanical garden:) you need to know the season in order to know what to expect. I was very excited for the promised birds as well in one of the guidebooks and there was only one bird...:))) also, google the pictures of the place,... More

It's a simple boat trip to get to the Aswan Botanical gardens and it's a wonderfully cool place to survive the heat of the day and see some wonderful and diverse plant species as well as in the museum finding out what the history and use, of some of these trees and plants, are . If green is your thing... More

Compared to botanical gardens in the United States, I would have equated this garden with a park setting. Not many labels and not very diverse planting seeds. Still, it was a nice felluca ride from Aswan. The only negative was the caretaker of the garden museum who kept bothering me trying to give me intonation, when I just wanted to... More

Very beautiful island with a serene garden, you can easily spend a couple of hours wandering around or simply sitting on the edge to watch the boats pass by and listen to the birds.
