Best Time To Visit Egypt

Plan your trip during best season to experience the best of this stunning destination

The best time to visit Egypt is from September to April when the weather is cool and pleasant. December and January see the peak season in Egypt due to the Christmas and New Year festivities. It might get very crowded during these months due to a large inflow of tourists, hence it is advisable to book hotels and tickets in advance. Summer season i.e from May to August is not an ideal time to visit Egypt with temperatures rising to as high as 38 degrees Celsius.

There is no monsoon season in Egypt, however, months from March to May receive occasional rains. 

March-May (25°C to 35°C):

March marks the end of the peak season and the beginning of excessive heat. There is occasional rain during this time. Temperature is much cooler than what it becomes in the next three months. But do keep an eye out or rather shut, for the famous Khamsin Wind – a minor sandstorm that occurs across Egypt during April-May.

Significance: Get to take part in the festivities of the Sphinx Festival, Sham al Nazeem, and Ramadan. 

Tip: Carry light clothes and a lot of sunscreen with a hat and sunglasses. 

June - August (40°C to 45°C):

The month of June experiences the start of the scorching heat, but to see what summer means in a desert country, that too in the greatest desert of the world, one must wait till mid-July. The heat is too much, especially in Luxor and Aswan which are two very important tourist destinations. Even the lower rates of hotel and flight tickets are not worth it because of the extreme weather conditions. Although it is not the best time to visit Egypt, you can still enjoy it here on a budget during this time. 

Significance: Get to take part in the festivities of Islamic New Year and Eid Al Adha. 

Tip: Carry clothes made of cotton and linen. Apply a lot of sunscreens all over the body. 

September - November (38°C to 40°C):

Heat in the southern cities still remains near 38°C-40°C, but the cities in Northern Egypt get a little bit cooler than May - June. This is the time when beach activities by the Red Sea and the Mediterranean are very popular.

From scuba diving, snorkeling to swimming with sharks and dolphins, visitors have many options to pursue. Nile River Cruises are also a great way to enjoy the autumn.

Significance: Get to take part in the festivities of Mawlid An-Nabi and Aby Simbel Sun Festival.

Tip: Take more part in beach activities during these months. 

December - February (15°C to 20°C):

Have you been wondering about what could be the best time to visit Egypt pyramids. It won’t be that cold, since the whole country has a very arid and dry desert-like climate all through the year, but it does get pretty chilly at night. But temperatures do come down to around 20 degrees during December and January in more or less every part, even Luxor and Aswan.

Partake in the West Bank Marathon event held in late January or early February for an altogether different experience.

Significance: Get to take part in the festivities of the Coptic Christmas and West Bank Marathon.

Tip: Carry clothes as per the weather conditions. 

Festivals Celebrated in Egypt

Ramadan: This Egypt festival is the most important festival celebrated by Muslims all over the country. Ramadan is a popular festival wherein the cities are lit up and markets become lively. Fasting is done from sunrise till sunset and later all the festivities are done with friends and family. The festival is celebrated during the holy month of Ramadan which usually falls in the months of May and June. It is also the best time to travel to Egypt with family and friends. 

Best Time to Visit Egypt for Sphinx Festival: This is one of the most iconic festivals of Egypt in which people are educated and enriched with the ancient heritage and rich history of Egypt. During the five days festivity, various activities like dance, educational workshops, and music shows take place in which both locals as well as tourists take part with great enthusiasm.

Best Time to Visit Egypt for Coptic Christmas: Coptic Christmas is celebrated with great zest and zeal by the people residing in Cairo and Coptic regions of Egypt. Not only the Christians but people from all religions and races take part in this festival. This festival is celebrated every year on the 7th of January and the preparation starts one week before. People gather with friends and family to enjoy feasting on meat soup, garlic, and rice. It is also seen as the best time to visit Egypt among many visitors. 

Best Time to Visit Egypt for Nile Cruise: October to April is the best time to cruise the Nile River. The temperatures are pretty favorable during this time and you won't find many travelers, as well as this, is not the peak tourist season.  

Best Time to Visit Egypt for the Red Sea: June to September is the best time to visit Egypt for the Red Sea experience. Various activities like snorkeling, diving, etc can be best enjoyed during these months. 

Climate in Egypt

Summer Season in Egypt

Egypt weather is sweltering during the summer. For this reason, the crowd is very thin. The hotels are more affordable and is the best time for budget travelling. Since the majority of Egypt celebrates Ramadan for one whole month typically in summer, some attractions can close earlier.

Monsoon Season in Egypt

Monsoons in Egypt are very erratic. Usually, no place receives much of rainfall. During early spring Cairo and some other northern parts do receive some scattered rainfall. But there can be a drought for a year and then a flash flood the next year. There is no specific monsoon season.

Winter Season in Egypt

Egypt only has summer, too much summer and a little less summer! So the time which should ideally be winter is actually characterised by the milder warmth in the air. However, this ensures that the holiday season sees a lot of crowd in Egypt.

    Jacob's 7 days trip to Egypt

    We were a group of 3 friends and we had planned Egypt during the pandemic. I have earlier booked a couple of trips with Travel Triangle and so it was a natural choice when it came to plan the Trip to Egypt. Soon I was put in touch with Mr Shashank from Lykke Travels. Mr Shashank was patient and unde
    rstanding right from the word go. Any and every apprehension we had regarding the Trip, budget, things to do, hotels, PCR testing etc etc was put to rest by his excellent awareness about Egypt. He was kind enough to incorporate the zillion changes we made to the itinerary. The flight as well as the transfer to Dahab hostel was smooth. Dahab Hostel was the perfect choice as it was centrally located and made our commute to various places much shorter. Fantastic place to stay, excellent reception staff but I am taking away one star coz of the cats..there are so many of them. Anyway next we headed to Hurghada where everything was just perfect. Mr Shashank was kind enough to put me in touch with the adventure sports operators and we had an absolute blast. The Dana beach resort was a fantastic choice. Then we headed back to Cairo and did the mandatory sight seeing . As we had our own cab and guide so we had flexible timing and thoroughly enjoyed the shopping experience at Khan e Khalili. All and all it was a fantastic trip and looking back I realise it was a very wise decision to have let Mr Shashank handle the itinerary. Will remember this trip for a lifetime and looking forward to more trips with you. Cheers

    LYKKE organised our trip to Egypt last December, Shashank planned a fantastic and well organised trip. Right from taking care of our Visa formalities to booking the best hotels, making sure that our transit between various locations were smooth to guiding us about how to get the local experience.
    We literary did not have to look out for any details of the trip and everything was seamlessly planned by Shashank who also contiuously checked with us for any issues. Thanks LYKKE for making this trip a memorable experience for us

    Vaibhavi's 9 days trip to Egypt

    Trip destinations: Egypt, Dubai Holiday Aces was a good agency. Had a good trip in Egypt and Dubai. Esp in Egypt the guide (Mr. Tamer Akmal) was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. It was a great experience learning about Egyptian history with him. I personally recommend him for Egypt to
    ur. The planning from the end of holiday aces was good, but there is a room for improvement there. The destinations and recommendations were quite standard. I would recommend getting the itinerary finalized with them in advance to the T, since modifications in the itinerary were difficult and additions in the excursions was charged extra. eg. We wanted to view miracle garden and Global village in Dubai, but it could not be accommodated despite the agent assuring us that itinerary can be flexible. Also there is scope of improvement wrt promptness of communication by the team eg. during Visa process, driver not coming to pick us up at Sharjah airport etc. But overall, a good experience.

    Dhruv's 7 days trip to Egypt

    We had a very bad experience this time with travel triangle and travel agency (Travel Alpha). We did not get on-time support from travel triangle agent Sumit as he was ill when the chaos happened with the travel agency and his replacement was unable to understand the problems as he was unaware of pr
    evious history and the chats we had with Sumit and the travel agency. Literally we had to call every hour to get an update on our VISA processing and the hotel bookings/vouchers. This was a very mismanaged trip from the travel agency (travel alpha). I think these guys are newbies in this business so they don't have much experience how to deal with customers and handle their queries on time and provide travel details on time. Atleast we wont recommend the agency to any other friend of ours. Moreover due to this travel triangle impression on our minds has gone down drastically. The rating for the hotels was good because those were our suggestion, we literally had to fight with the agency to get our bookings done in those hotels although it was very well communicated to them where we are going to stay at the very beginning of the trip planning. Anyways, we will plan our next international trip on our own or go with other online platform.

    Ranadip's 7 days trip to Egypt

    Highly Recommended. They work hard to synchronise all transfers ,sight seeing arrangements and Hotel stay. Never broken communication link between Shashank in India and the representative Mr. Ahmed at Egypt. Always enquired our wellbeing through whatsapp/voice call. I would recommend all inclusive
    tours including entrance fees to monuments and three meals a day.Overall tour was professionally managed and we enjoyed thoroughly without any hitches. Being a senior citizen of 73 years old they have taken all care to avoid discomfort while at travel. We wish all the best and hope to associate ourselves with them for all our future tours.

    Sapna's 6 days trip to Egypt

    "I was so pleased with the trip. My travel guide Shashank Agarwal and Local tour leader(Mousa) were outstanding : knowledgeable, friendly, safety-conscious, and had great sense of humor. I will highly recommend TravelLyyk company to those who inquire as you exceeded all expectations. Communicatio
    ns: Very thorough. I stayed in constant communication. Information was all inclusive and helpful. Last minutes changes also accommodated in nice way. Guides: Quite enjoyable. Resourceful, knowledgeable, competent, funny and intuitive. Excellent service. Tour: I think I had an excellent sampling of the different habitats and the tour really was - delightfully - off the beaten path. I enjoyed each of the area I visited and was especially impressed by the visit to Red pyramids, White Desert and Hurgada. Excellent! The route and program gave me the right amount of free time as well as organized activities. Accomodations: Clean and comfortable. The meals were excellent everywhere I went. Accommodations far met my expectation. In all cases they were friendly staff, very good food, and well located. Transports: On time. The local tour leader was excellent, flexible, agreable, safe and pleasant. All internal transfers were pleasant and comfortable. The tour guide : Outstanding tour leader and guide! This is a combination of both his friendly, outgoing personality and his incredible knowledge of all aspects of Egypt: history, culture, food, places plus much skill with the scope, etc. Thank you for your service and I look forward to working with you again."

    Ananta's 7 days trip to Egypt

    Egypt was my dream destination since I was a kid. Pyramids, Sphinx and mummies always fascinated me. But a trip to Egypt was unlike my previous to any other destination because of so rich Egyptian history. So we picked Travel Triangle to arrange everything for us. The arrangement was good. All the
    transfers were very timely, drivers were nice. The guides for all the attractions were well informed and kept on guiding us on from where should we buy souvenirs. Also, all the days were well planned to not overexert except one day in Luxor (the last day of our trip). Everytime (pre-booking and during the trip) the agents involved were pro active in all the communication and were readily availabe. One feedback for improvement is that we have to remind the local guides about all the things promised in the itinerary instead it should be other way around. I am handing over the trip management to some agency because I intend to be careless and worryless during my vacation.
