Overview

Aswan, though located on the east bank of river Nile, is one of the driest places in the world. Yet it has a beautiful green garden where you can appreciate the beauty of a variety of plants and trees. Board a felucca (an Egyptian sailing boat) to reach the island of Lord Kitchner, which was gifted to this English General for his military exploits in Sudan. A nature lover, he imported plants and trees from all over the world and laid the foundation of the Botanical Garden as we see it today. A stroll around the garden will refresh you and your visit to the Lord Kitchner Island in Aswan will be a beautiful memory.
