“Lovely gardens”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Beautiful island in the Nile, lovely gardens. Vendors may follow you though, and "museum" not really worth the tip.

“Camel rides”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

I saw a cool nubian village and was invited in for tea. Then a gentleman showed me his baby crocodiles in a cage (a symbol of strength and goodluck.) So he yanks one out and lets me hold it! (phew) this was topped off by a camel ride which only cost about 35 le but I gave atip to the nice guy who I was with. The shops on this Island also have good egyptians souvenirs made of granite and other materials not just cheap plastic! Loved it

“A relaxing place in Aswan”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

When I visited the island it was quite deserted, except for the people selling artifacts etc. Kitchener's Island is very peaceful with palms and many other exotic trees providing useful shade. However, the cafe only sells drinks, no food, and at quite expensive prices. As I was leaving I was hassled a bit by the usual crowd and I was offered a live crocodile, caught from lake Nasser! Overall, It was one of my favourite places in Aswan with good bird life and tranquility.

“Peace and tranquility”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

We visited the island from the neighbouring Isis Island and really enjoyed exploring this peaceful setting. The museum showed, in an interesting format, samples of leaves and fruits of the various trees in the Botanical Gardens and then we wandered freely among the trees which provided welcome shade. Well worth a visit!
