Watching Saga travellers climbing on to a Felucca was interesting as the water level was so low the boat couldn't dock to allow us to board safely. But Saga travellers don't let something like that spoil our fun, so we had men holding a pole as a handrail down the bank, and by the side of the gang plank that... More

Some of these were quite beautiful, very reasonably priced after bartering and not seen elsewhere. The variety of plants on this incredibly peaceful island was astounding and generally the garden was very well cared for with hoopoes pecking under stones and... More

Aswan Botanical garden is on an island in the middle of river Nile, where you will find agriculture and trees from all over the world. It is such a relaxing place with a great view of the Nile.

An old botanical garden built by King Foad in the early 20th century. They brought trees from all over the world. Lots of birds there too. As an island you give there by a boat and spend some time there. Worth visiting.
