Botanical Garden & Elephantine Island Tour

We'll pick you up from your hotel in Aswan before driving to the banks for the River Nile, where we'll visit 2 small islands in a traditional felucca boat.

Awan Botanical Garden Tour

Take a traditional felucca boat ride to the small island known as Elnabatat's Island, situated in the Great River Nile in Aswan. This 750-meter long oval shaped island is a popular place to escape the City of Aswan amongst the beautiful scenery of carefully landscaped gardens and exotic trees and plants.

Elephantine Island Tour

Next to the beautiful botanical garden island of Alnabatat lies Elephantine Island, just 1,200-meters from top to bottom, the island gets it's name from it's similarity in shape to an elephants tusk from the air. Known to the Ancient Egyptians as Abu or Yebu, the island of Elephantine marked the border between Egypt and Nubia.

It's location made the Island of Elephantine perfect as a location for a defensive fort, as well as a trading island, and in ancient times the island was also an important stone quarry, providing granite to many important projects of building monuments and buildings.

The island has been the site of many important archaeological finds in modern times, including a mummified ram and a rare calendar dating back to Thutmose III. On our tour of Elephantine Island you'll see the ruins of temples that were destroyed during the Ottoman occupation of Egypt, as well as a granite step pyramid from the third dynasty.

Return to your Hotel in Aswan

After a half day tour discovering some of Aswans famous sights we'll travel back to your hotel.
