The docking at stone steps make one feels you are like the Ancient Egyptians who owned a house on the Nile. It is a vast and peaceful garden with plenty of trees which originate from the four corners of the world. On the west side, one can get a splendid view of the beginning of the Sahara.

If you arr interested in plants then you will like it! But if you seek ancient Egyptian monuments in Aswan then you will find it normal. The best thing in it for me was its amazing location on an island above the Nile river.

Would have seemed more suitable for me during school, nevertheless, it's an OK stretch of the legs. I wouldn't consider it a scenic place as the trees and plants seems fine but not "An Attraction" in my humble opinion. Was OK overall.

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

This place is suitable if you need to relax far from the city, you can find a wide variety of trees from all over the world. The garden is well kept and clean, cats and dogs give you a good company too. This garden is just in the middle of the river, from one side you can see the city,... More
