cool place: you can be in a real natural open garden, perfect for a walk, photo sessions, talks, brunch time at a restaurant, part of your tour local: this is not racist but some low standard ethics might be existing will make a mess.

Sponsored by the Aga Khan Foundation and described as the green lung of Cairo. It's really well organised and beautifully maintained. The restaurant complex is great, we've visited twice, for afternoon tea and dinner. There is a great gift shop too.

Nice place among historic cairo, artificial lake and few restaurants. Entrance ticket is not expensive, restaurants are above average. its a good place for picnics and events.
