Traditionally Egypt has been seen as a winter destination, with most visitors arriving between September and April. At this time of year, Cairo and Lower Egypt (the area towards the Mediterranean) are pleasantly cool, with average maximum temperatures in the low twenties celsius.

Upper Egypt (around Aswan and Luxor) tends to be a few degrees warmer, but still very pleasant. There may be some rain in Lower Egypt, but it is light and sporadic.

The summer season from May to September is very hot and best avoided, especially in Upper Egypt where temperatures can hit 50C.
