You go there by boat. Trip was fun, walking through all those gigantic trees. There is a cheap coffeshop at the end to rest before you leave. There is also a praying area. Took us around an hour to see the whole garden.

Only 20 Egyptian pounds to enter. Very pretty and open layout along the Nile. You need a boat to get there, and there are plenty waiting to take you back to Aswan.

The place is a hidden treasure under tons of neglect and poor care. I needs serious effort to regain its reputation.

What should be a really nice stroll through the gardens is spoilt by the constant shrieking from the bird noise toys being sold by the vendors. If you want to hear the natural surroundings you are severely out of luck. There are many species of...More

We hired a felucca at a good price, and part of the sail landed us at the Aswan Botanical Garden. I liked that each pathway was lined with its own unique palm trees, such as the Royal Palm and Sabal Palm trees. This was a...More
