The weather of this city can be divided into 3 main seasons:

- The months December and February are peak times.

  • Low Season (From June to August)

- Summers are long, hot, humid, and arid, with average highs of around 35C in July.

- This season provides a number of offers on hotels and flights and mostly suitable for low-budgets.

  • Shoulder Season (March & May, September & October)

- This period of time is spring and autumn seasons, when the weather is less extreme and there are fewer visitors around.


- If you are on a limited budget, you will most probably find a cheap flight from March to April and from October to November. This period is a comfortable season as there are fewer crowds and hotels and flights are cheaper.  

We suggest that the ideal time to visit Cairo is during the winter and spring months that go from September to March. The temperatures also during these seasons are slightly low, so you can enjoy being outdoors to explore the desert and snorkeling in the Red Sea.
