We had high hopes for the Botanic gardens at Aswan- but what a disappointment! We found rubbish strewn over the gardens and a succession of sales people approaching us frequently trying to sell trinkets and souvenirs. We found bougainvillea, amaryllis, gerbera, salvias and some gorgeous mahogany trees – but actually not much colour. It could have been so much better – and so much better looked after too.

Getting there by a boat with an interesting guide will likely allow for the time to learn about the history of Aswan Botanical Garden and its founding father Lord Kitchener.
El Nabatat Island or Kitchener's Island is a kilometer times half a kilometer in size, easy to explore on foot.
The botanical garden is a great place for the entire family.

Lord Kitchner (Consol-General of Egypt in the early 1900s) transformed this island into a expansive park of trees, plants and gardens. Many of these were imported from drought the British Empire at the time. Many paths to walk along and enjoy the greenery.

More of a walk around palm trees, many of which are overgrown. The trip by river is lovely, the landing stage delightful but the rest underwhelming. A shadow of its former self. There is clearly work being done but not at all sure what is is trying to achieve. Views are pleasant but that is about it. There is a small ‘cafe’ near the exit point.

I was hoping to enjoy this place in peace but there are just way too many people when I visited. I can’t even find a nice place to sit down that’s not around bunch of people. I also find this botanical garden way too small. I was hoping to stay here for about 2 hours but I finished walking around the entire place within 30 min. I have visited much nicer botanical gardens before so I don’t think it’s worth it at all.

Very nice place for those who are in love with nature. There are so many different types of flowers and trees. Some of them are unique.

Hight recommend this garden. After reading the reviews on here I wasnt expecting much, but we ended up spending a few hours here walking, taking photos and being amazed by the crocodiles. If I took a planket to lie in the sun and a picnic I could happily spend a whole day here. The cafe was too expensive so we didnt have anything. 20 Le entrance for non Egyptians, 10 LE for Locals. I made a youtube video to find out how many steps round the Island, it was one mile, and for those of you who want to do more you could walk the middle paths too and it would come to more than 2 miles.

Great botanical gardens, worth a stop if you’re in the area. I think there’s a public ferry on the backside of elephantine island to get there, that’ll save you from fighting for fair prices with private motor boats
