Boat trips are fun, but even better if there's an actual place to visit. Banana Island is THAT visit. It's a short trip into the banana tree farm to see how that popular fruit grows from a funky flower. If you already know, I guess you don't have to visit, but kids especially marvel at the stages shown. After seeing... More

We stopped off here after our felucca/boat ride up the nile. Our guide said he lived on the island. You could tell it was a tourist destination (saves diesel money for the boats as well I suppose) as they had quite a few benches and tables out. There are two poor monkeys chained up near the benches, which were presumably... More

you arrive on the island by boat and are greeted by the welcoming party. They take you through the plantation and it takes about half hour for the tour.Here you can also see crocodiles. At the end of the tour they take you to a resting place where they lay out lots of bananas for you to eat- No charge-... More

If you take a felucca trip on the Nile this is where they will probably take you and you will wonder what on earth for. The place is little more than a banana plantation which is currently under construction to extend the restaurant. The entrance fee allows you to view the lone crocodile in a cage (which may be mummified... More

This was a great place to visit and can be accessed either via the villages or by boat. It has lots of Egyptian character and serves traditional food. People very friendly Not sure about the wolves/crocs and other animals in cages....

Our falluca guide took us here. It wasn't anything great but you could see where the locals come on a day trip or kids go on a class trip. Everyone looked like they were having a great time. We had delicious bananas, and saw the elegator and the bat as well as the piqeon coop.

This place is great, I don't understand the other reviews. It's a kitschy little almost hippy commune looking plantation. Very peaceful and chilled and cheap if you are a westerner due to currency fluctuations. A good guide will take you on Felucca, a quick visit with a small bite and back at sunset. The crocodile is bizarre and I also... More
