Weather and climate Egypt

Climate: Egypt has a hot and dry desert climate, with cold nights in the winter and very high temperatures from May to September (often over 40 degrees Celsius). Rainfall is extremely rare. In December and January the nights in the desert can be quite cold. The Egyptian Spring begins in February. During the summer months people are generally only active in the evening and at night and spend the daytime having long siestas. If you stick to this rhythm, you will not find the summer hard to endure. But don’t forget to drink enough and stay out of the sun during the hottest hours of the day.

Best time to travel: Egypt lends itself to a visit all year around. However, the best months to go are February, March, October, November and December.
