Kitchener Island Botanic Gardens
This small island in the middle of the Nile River in Aswan was given to Lord Kitchener as thanks for his efforts in the Sudan campaign (1896-98).
He quickly created the Kitchener Island Botanic Gardens and turned the entire island into a mass of plants, paths, exotic flowers and trees.
After those mammoth efforts he handed the island over to the Egyptian Government who the area for biological research.
Today it is a popular spot for tourists and locals to spend some time wandering around the quiet, cool paradise before catching their felucca back to Aswan.

The highlight of my trip had to be Gweru in Zimbabwe, it was my idea of paradise. So much to do there with the animals and the location of it was just beautiful!

The trip was great! A very relaxed ride in a mokoro, followed by camping in the Okavango Delta and watching the animals on the islands was awesome!
