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.

It was my last day in Aswan and had time to kill so I took the trip. I was disappointed. From what I read I thought I would see plants dating back to a hundred years. There are some but it was not what I expected. It was a short lived trip but I can't say I regretted it when... More

Kitchener's Island is a wonderful haven for wildlife and plants. It comprises of gardens that are well tended, clean and tidy, despite the number of visitors they receive each day. It is a good place to go and sit . . . perhaps take a picnic. There are stalls and a firm 'no thank you' is sometimes required. Don't expect... More

You have to take a boat here. I am not a flower person but the trees here were really something. So unusual. Many stalls and a coffee shop.

Take a felucca ride and get down on the island, where there is a variety of trees and flowers, many of them tropical and exotic.
