Egypt: Know when to go?

Egypt has so much to offer and knowing when to travel and what to expect will help you enjoy it even more!

Egypt’s climate is one of the primary factors to consider when planning your trip. Egypt has mild winters and very hot summers.

The best time to visit Egypt is October through May. Temperatures vary from 60 up to around 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

The nights are usually cool but days are still sunny. For most of the year it is hot and sunny in Egypt. Unless you are using an umbrella to protect yourself from the sun, you will most likely find no use for it.

You will have to watch out for dust storms in March and April. The Egyptians call this phenomenon “khamsin”. “Khamsin” is a hot wind that travels through the Western Desert. Winds reach speeds up to 90 miles per hour and carry a lot of dust and sand from the desert. These sandstorms can last for days and usually leave everything covered with a thick layer of dust.

In the summer time the weather gets very hot and humid. Temperatures reach 100+ degrees Fahrenheit. If you don’t mind the swampy weather and high temperatures, feel free to visit Egypt in the summer.
