  • very poor Garden it's need much more Improvement ,. the nile river view was great but the garden was very poor,. idon't like it  more »
  • Probably a place where tourists rarely come, friends specially arranged for us to take a boat to take a cool heart, most of the local residents with children to enjoy the shade, the environment is quiet and comfortable, many trees and wonderful flowers .

  • Small oasis in the desert along the Nile. Trees imported from all over the world. It's a place to wonder and relax. Many people were having picnics on the grass. There is a mosque on the island as well as a cafeteria. Some trees were in bloom while we were there as seen in the photos. Lots of street vendors. You need to take a boat from town to get there.
  • It's an amazing place to visit with a lot of nice plants and trees that you don't usually see... I would recommend visiting time to be 2 hours before sunset as you can enjoy the lovely view of the sunset. You need to take a boat to the island and you can get some souvenirs from the local guys before leaving the island.
  • Beautiful gardens on Kitchener Island on the Nile River at Aswan. All plant and tree varieties are clearly marked. So it's easy to know what you are seeing. Cafe with nice outdoor seating.
  • Nice and fun little casual place. Not much stuff inside but the scenery is amazing. Can get some good shots and have a nice time in general. 20 Egyptian pound entrance seems less but is a lot for this place. Good testing place.
  • Botanists paradise. So many different species of plant life here. A small museum at the entrance of the island has a all the plants on display for identification purposes before you walk the garden.
