March and April
The springtime months are a great time to visit the country with average temperatures ranging from the mid 70`s to low 80`s and comfortable cool evenings. The Khamsin wind seasons take place during April and May which brings a minor yet extremely hot sandstorm through most of the country. Normally this only lasts for a few days but does not cause too much disruption to travel plans. Prices and crowds start to rise around Easter time in Egypt so booking accommodations and travel in advance are recommended.
