Located on Kitchener’s Island, one of two islands in the Nile immediately adjacent to the city-center of Aswan, the Aswan Botanical Gardens offer a beautiful and unique escape from the city. The entirety of the island is landscaped with rare and exotic plants that were planted there by Lord Horatio Kitchener, who was gifted the island for his service as consul general of Egypt under British control.

Lord Kitchener’s passion for horticulture was expressed through his conversion of the island given into a garden. The Egyptian government later reclaimed the island and it has been maintained as the Aswan Botanical Gardens.

The only way to reach the island is by boat, either on one of the public ferries that run between Aswan, Elephantine Island, and Kitchener’s Island or by hiring a felucca.
