Full Description

Let's take a fascinating cruise along the Nile on a traditional Egyptian felucca along the numerous islands of Aswan, and then visit one of them, where the Botanical Garden is located.

A felucca tour to the Botanical Garden in Aswan is a relaxing and scenic way to explore this beautiful area. Feluccas are traditional sailboats that have been used on the Nile for centuries, and they provide a unique and authentic experience for travelers.

The Botanical Garden is located on Kitchener's Island, a small island in the Nile river that was gifted to Lord Kitchener in the early 20th century. The island was then transformed into a lush garden oasis filled with exotic plants and trees from all over the world. The Botanical Garden offers a peaceful and serene escape from the hustle and bustle of Aswan, and it's a perfect spot to unwind and take in the natural beauty of the area.

The felucca tour typically starts from the banks of the Nile in Aswan and takes about 30 minutes to reach Kitchener's Island. During the tour, you'll sail past stunning views of the Nile, including the lush greenery and towering sand dunes that line the riverbanks. You may also catch a glimpse of local fishermen and their traditional boats as they cast their nets in the river.

Once you arrive at Kitchener's Island, you'll have the opportunity to explore the Botanical Garden at your own pace. Take a leisurely stroll through the winding paths, admiring the beautiful flowers, plants, and trees. Some of the highlights of the garden include a large variety of palms, cacti, and succulents, as well as rare species of orchids and other tropical plants.

After you've explored the garden, your felucca will be waiting to take you back to Aswan. On the way back, enjoy the tranquil beauty of the Nile and the stunning views of the city skyline. The felucca tour to the Botanical Garden is a must-do experience for nature lovers and anyone looking to relax and unwind in the peaceful surroundings of Aswan.
