Pretty Gardens on Kitchner's Island
Sep. 2021
Lord Kitchner (Consol-General of Egypt in the early 1900s) transformed this island into a expansive park of trees, plants and gardens. Many of these were imported from drought the British Empire at the time. Many paths to walk along and enjoy the greenery.

Not really a botanical garden
Jul. 2021 • Couples
More of a walk around palm trees, many of which are overgrown. The trip by river is lovely, the landing stage delightful but the rest underwhelming. A shadow of its former self. There is clearly work being done but not at all sure what is is trying to achieve. Views are pleasant but that is about it. There is a small ‘cafe’ near the exit point.

Small and crowded
Jan. 2021 • Family
I was hoping to enjoy this place in peace but there are just way too many people when I visited. I can’t even find a nice place to sit down that’s not around bunch of people. I also find this botanical garden way too small. I was hoping to stay here for about 2 hours but I finished walking around the entire place within 30 min. I have visited much nicer botanical gardens before so I don’t think it’s worth it at all.

Very nice place for those who are in love with nature. There are so many different types of flowers and trees. Some of them are unique.

Take a picnic and blanket, spend the day!
Jan. 2021
Hight recommend this garden. After reading the reviews on here I wasnt expecting much, but we ended up spending a few hours here walking, taking photos and being amazed by the crocodiles. If I took a planket to lie in the sun and a picnic I could happily spend a whole day here. The cafe was too expensive so we didnt have anything. 20 Le entrance for non Egyptians, 10 LE for Locals. I made a youtube video to find out how many steps round the Island, it was one mile, and for those of you who want to do more you could walk the middle paths too and it would come to more than 2 miles.

Not a bad place to walk around and relax

Great botanical gardens, worth a stop if you’re in the area. I think there’s a public ferry on the backside of elephantine island to get there, that’ll save you from fighting for fair prices with private motor boats

Just a stunning display!
Jan. 2021 • Couples
We truly loved our day spent at the Aswan Botanical Gardens! They have a broad range of different plants that are well labeled snd taken care of. The setting in the middle if the Nile River is just spectacular! Ride the boat over and enjoy your time. You won’t be disappointed!

Nice Sightseing during the day
Dec. 2020 • Family
Kitchener’s Island, to the west of Elephantine Island, was given to Lord Horatio Kitchener in the 1890s when he was commander of the Egyptian army. Indulging his passion for beautiful palms and plants, Kitchener turned the entire island into the stunning Aswan Botanical Gardens, importing plants from the Far East, India and parts of Africa.
The  island is most easily seen as part of a felucca tour. Alternatively, take the northernmost ferry to Elephantine Island and walk through the village to the other side of the island, where a few little feluccas wait on the western edge to take visitors across to the gardens.
