Ismail Pasha, the then-ruler of Egypt, first established the Giza Zoo in 1891. He once remarked that he tried to integrate Egypt into both Europe and Africa. It featured treasured architectural elements like a miniature suspension bridge constructed by Gustave Eiffel ten years before the construction of his well-known Eiffel Tower, as well as unusual plants and uncommon animals. Currently one of Greater Cairo’s few green spaces, it is also a valuable piece of real estate next to a posh hotel and shopping center and adjacent to the west bank of the Nile.
