Took a trip down the nile and stopped off at Banana Island it’s only a small place but peaceful and relaxing saw the animals that are caged and don’t look too happy the crocodiles didn’t have enough space to move about and it was quite...More

These "real world" tourist sites always get a bad review but would you want people coming through you home on a regular basis to see how you live. Take this site in context. Yes it is a tourist site but it is also a glimpse...More

The banana farm is fine, but they keep animals in horrendous conditions, as if they're an amateur zoo. I know it might be due to cultural differences, but it's not worth visiting this place to support their harmful practices. They had wolves pacing endlessly in...More

Our boat ride stopped here for some reason. The island sports a variety of fruit trees, some caged animals, and a small cafe to enjoy tea or bananas. I would have rather the boat stayed on the water than spent time here.
