September and May in Egypt are still good times to visit but temperatures will begin to rise. Even in Egypt’s coolest months, temperatures across the country will reach 20°C.

Egypt’s summer is incredibly hot, with temperatures often reaching 35 to 40°C. Egypt heat is a dry heat, and travel in summer means fewer visitors and lower prices.
