This visit to the botanical gardens was included on our cruise itinerary. We enjoyed to huge colorful flowering shrubs and pleasant shade of the huge trees from all over the world, we were reading their names on tags. I felt they were fairly well taken care of (with visitor numbers so low), given the fact there is no rain and... More

This island is worth going to. Although they are just a bunch of trees, flowers, etc. from around the world, they do have the English names for them. Overall it's a nice relaxing island to walk, sit in the shade, have a picnic, or sit at the cafe and drink or eat or buy souvenirs.

Like alot of the attraction is Egypt this one needs some up keep. The "feed the cats" at the entrance would be great if they sold some small bags of cat food. The cats are in terrible condition. The garden is in need of weeding, pruning and general up keep. Nice boat ride to get there and interesting view of... More

The botanical garden contains many trees of interest, some surprisingly large. Most are labelled. There are also some trees near the waters edge in which egrets and other birds hang out. Their conversation among themselves is quite funny sounding! The contrast between the lushness of the gardens and the huge desert sand dunes a few hundred metres to the west... More

Nice boat trip across from Aswan to the Botanic Garden and nice views of the Nile from there. Not much else really except a pleasant stroll through the shaded garden, oh and the usual pestering vendors.

This was a peaceful visit in a day packed with information. The gardens are on an island so take a boat trip, see the birds, and stop off here for a leisurely stroll. If you're into trees this is the place for you. Even in February it was colourful so what its like in the summer must be gorgeous. Walk... More
