Upon reaching the first stop of the tour, you can see the Botanical Gardens on Lord Kitchener Island, home to a group of plants that were imported from all over the wilderness in the nineteenth century.
It was settled by the Nubians and they called it the Natrun Park, then the British later used it in the late nineteenth century as a military base and they named it Saradar Island, but King Fouad I changed its name to King’s Island, until the Egyptian revolution in July 1952 to command the late President Gamal Abdel Nasser Finally called it the Island of Plants.
Enjoy some free time to wander around the gardens, and enjoy the majestic palm trees lining the corridors including Sabal and Phonic Palm trees as well as Ficus and other beautiful Bougainvillea trees.
Return to the boat and follow along the Nile, to watch the sunset and the color of the sky change. Sail around Elephantine Island, a small island with ancient ruins and temples, and then slip off after the Aga Khan Mausoleum built in the style of the Fatimid tombs in Cairo.
