The history of the Kitchener's Island goes way back as it was known as Kitchener Island in 1899 after Consul-General Lord Kitchener used the island as his headquarters for his military exploits and campaigns in Sudan. He was awarded the island as a gift where he worked on indulging his hobby of being a Botanist; he worked on transforming the 750m (2,460 ft.) long island into a heavenly habitat for rare, subtropical, and exotic plants by importing seeds and shrubs from far countries like India and Malaysia on the course of three years from 29 September 1911 to June 1914. The ministry of Irrigation worked on expanding his work in 1928 by featuring trees and plants from the five continents. The Garden became a part of the Egyptian Government and used a Botanical Research Institute. Aswan is the most glamorous region in Egypt and home to the best Pharaoh's attractions.
