You got by boat that picks you up at your hotel. Not really an island but on the Nile River. It is a banana plantation that has crocodiles, pigeons, and monkeys, all in cages. It is the home to 3 generations of 1 family who...More

I had lots of time to waste so didn't mind so much doing this trip but this was a truly pathetic tourist spot. Boat trip uninspiring, past plastic rubbish floating in the nile never getting past the city limits, to stop at essentially a glorified...More

We stupidly went here after being told it was a great place to visit. After seeing a few monkeys in a small cafe and a few crocs in a pit we left. Boat trip was 120 Egyptian pounds and entrance fee was 1 USD each.
