Best Time To Visit Cairo

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

The short shoulder seasons from March to April and then from October to November is ideally the best time to visit Cairo. If you are looking for the peak tourist season, then it is the winter. Egypt being a desert country located too near to the equator, summers here are unbelievably hot. It is comparatively cooler than its southern neighbours Luxor or Aswan, but it is still hot enough to have a comfortable tour in the sands.

Cairo in March-April

This is the best time of the year to visit Cairo. Just after the swarm of tourists from the winter season leaves and the rates plummet quickly, making way for a cheaper vacation. Temperatures range from 22°C to 34°C on an average. So if you want a tour of Cairo under blue skies and pleasant weather which is also light on your pockets, this time is perfect.

Cairo in May- September

From May to September, Cairo experiences its long and hot summer. Chances are, you will be coming from a place which is comparatively cooler than Egypt in the summer. So it is not a very good idea to spend the already hot summer in a city known for desert. The temperature does not sound too high. It stays around 30°-35°C on an average. But given that the prime attractions around Cairo, like the Giza Pyramids and Sphinx or activities like camel riding or quad biking are located in the desert, it will feel a lot hotter than what the mercury says.

Cairo in October-November

Just before the peak season starts, October-November acts as a good shoulder time for a visit, just like March-April. November is the best time to visit Cairo, Egypt if you are looking for the last of low rates and a lukewarm type of weather. Temperature stays around 17°C-20°C, which is very comfortable for all the outdoor activities.

Cairo in December-February

December to February is the prime-time for Cairo tourism. The cold weather paired with refreshing breezes makes it an experience worth cherishing. Day-time temperature rests in 15°-18°C, but at night it can plummet further. Sand cools as fast as it heats. So you can expect Cairo to be quite cold after nightfall.

Climate in Cairo

Summer Season in Cairo

The only two good things about visiting Cairo in summer are the shorter queues at attractions and low rates of airfare and hotel. Because of the high temperature, which feels even higher out in the open desert than the city, tourism is at its lowest during summer. But if you can handle the heat and are looking for budget vacation to the beautiful Egyptian capital, then summer could just be the best time to visit Cairo for you.

Monsoon Season in Cairo

Cairo does not get much of rain, which is self-explanatory given it is a desert country mostly. The summer months, unlike most places in northern hemisphere, get absolutely zero precipitation. There is some scattered rainfall from November to March, but it is not enough to call it a monsoon.

Winter Season in Cairo

Winters in Cairo are crowded as anything. The weather during winters is the most pleasant one, which draws tourists from around the world to the city. If you want to plan your trip during the winter season, the weather is certainly a pro, but the cons are the crowds and the high rates of fares, as well as their limited availability. It would be wise to book months ahead of the vacation.

      Very well arranged tour with a perfect itinerary. The guides were amazing & very knowledgeable. Although we missed the hot air balloon on day 2 bcoz of train delay, it was scheduled on a different day & that day happened to be Jan 1. It was indeed surreal to start 2019 by watching the first sunrise of the year from high up in the sky! Hot Air Balloon ride at Luxor & the Nile Cruise

      Devaansh was super attentive and helpful. Trip was great, but I had a separate agency coordinator for pickup and dropoff, a historian tour guide, and a new driver each day in Egypt. Tipping was out of hand. Wish that were more consolidated as in other countries. Otherwise great time!
