Description

Board a traditional Nile felucca and sail to Kitchener's Island – home to one of the most spectacular botanical gardens in the world. On your personalised private tour, learn about different species of plants and be amazed by this exotic paradise.

Hop aboard a traditional wooden felucca, typically sailed through the protected waters of the Red Sea and eastern Mediterranean. Your guide sets the two lateen sails, then your exploration through the protected waters of the Nile begins, leading to Kitchener's Island.

Kitchener's Island is considered Aswan's second major island; it was given to Lord Kitchener as a gift in recognition of his efforts in the Sudan Campaign. Hear about the history of the island and how Kitchener transformed it into a small exotic paradise that boasts lush vegetation. As you stroll along the palm-lined alleys, marvel at the rich variety of flora surrounding you, including some rare plants.
