When you go to the botanical gardens, take your binoculars...Lots of birds here! The gardens are old and established. Within the water influence zone, they irrigate plenty to keep things growing. It was calm, quiet and somewhat cool in the garden, well worth the time...More

We had a quick visit since we were staying opposite the botanical garden in Movenpick Aswan . It has a very strange serenity and rare trees since 1940 or even before

I took the sailboat ride that included a visit here. Unfortunately, low wind and a pending cruise departure meant a rushed powerwalk thru only part of it. The paths are very nice and it's very lush and attractive. The views to the Nile coast and...More

We visited this botanical garden on Kitchener’s Island. Lord Kitchener, a British army officer and a consul created this tropical garden importing tropical plants and trees from all over the world. The felucca ride to the island was enjoyable, be careful while embarking and disembarking....More

Kitchener island, as a whole, constitutes the Aswan Botanical Garden. There are many types of subtropical, exotic, and rare plantings and trees. The collection was begun by Lord Kitchener, that's why the island is named Kitchener. The island and gardens can be reached by felucca....More

You are better off spending your time and money elsewhere. The garden is not well maintained and does not provide any information about the trees and plants besides their names. And if you do go, avoid going on a Thursday since the garden is likely...More
