Things to know if you are planning your trip to visit Egypt

Planning Your Trip To Egypt 2022?

Best Time To Visit Egypt

Egypt is a country that you can visit at any time of the year as it offers plenty of sunshine and minimal rain however, the ideal months to visit Egypt are from September to November and March to May as the weather is mild and the temperatures are pleasant.

The summer months which are from June to August usually mean that the temperatures get very high. This is perfect weather for soaking up the sun’s rays and snorkelling however. From October to February which is Egypt’s winter months, the weather is cooler with the chance of some rain.  In comparison to most European countries, the temperatures are still warm and activities such as diving can be done year round.

It is likely that the Great Pyramids make your travel bucket list, but it really should be all of Egypt, for there’s so much more it offers. In these fast-moving times, travel to a land that symbolises the very meaning of the word ancient. And for the best version of the experience, plan it all based on the best season to go to Egypt.

Naturally, climatic conditions and annual seasons are the most important factors to consider, as venturing outdoors under the sweltering desert heat is not the most comfortable experience. While the cooler seasons are simply ideal! Then there’s also the yearly festivals and celebrations that determine the best time to visit Egypt. Like the month of Ramadan, when food and local transport is affected. As such, the country welcomes tourists throughout the year, but it’s always better to schedule your vacation to suit your personal travel needs.

Egypt Visa

Most visitors to Egypt are required to have a visa, which can be arranged through Egyptian consulates worldwide, online via the official website:, or upon arrival at the Cairo International Airport.

Visitors from the UK, USA, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the EU may purchase their visa stamp upon arrival in Egypt. South Africans need to arrange their Egyptian visa prior to arrival. Please note that single-entry tourist visa fee is USD 25 and it can only be paid in USD, GBP or Euro.

Travellers entering Egypt must have a passport valid for at least 6 months from your arrival date. This information is provided only as guidance, we strongly advise that you check with the consulate as this information can change at any time and with little notice. It is your responsibility to make sure that all the required travel documents are ready when travelling.

All visitors to Egypt need to obtain a visa to enter the country unless they are from a visa-exempt country. There are different types of entry visa to Egypt: the visa on arrival, and the Egypt e-Visa. The Egypt visa on arrival has been available for a long time. It is possible to obtain one at the Egyptian border.

Egypt Culture

Egypt’s culture is a fusion of both the ancient times and the modern today. The culture of Egypt has thousands of years of chronicled history with Egypt being amongst one of the initial civilisations. This can be seen through its impressive monuments, sites, architecture and artwork. Although this is still evident in Egypt, the influence of modern culture is apparent in the main cities such as Cairo and Alexandria where the likes of internet and television have opened the Egyptians eyes up to the Western world of different ideas such as music, fashion and literature. Though this may be the case, Egyptian’s firmly hold onto their traditions and customs.

However, there are also a lot of Christians in Egypt where the greater part belongs to the Coptic Orthodox Church, the dominate religion in Egypt before Islam.  Whichever religion, religion in Egypt controls many parts of societal life, is permitted by the law and life entails daily prayer.  The religious holidays of Ramadan and Eid are the most significant events for Muslims.

The Egyptians believed that joy and happiness were legitimate goals of life and regarded home and family as the major source of delight.” Because of this belief, women enjoyed a higher prestige in Egypt than in any other culture of the ancient world.

Egyptian Food & Drink

When you visit Egypt, it is an essential part of experiencing the country by trying the food and drink. Egyptian food is a combination of Turkish, Syrian, Lebanese, Greek and French cuisines, adapted to match what the locals like. Street stalls and eateries provide dishes that are tasty, simple and cheap whereas restaurants offer a wider variety of dishes and are more expensive. Nonetheless, getting the opportunity to taste a broad assortment of Egyptian food is what it’s all about. The array of spices, vegetables, fruit and meat that is prepared so different to how you’re used to makes a trip to Egypt unique. Egypt’s countrywide beverage is tea (shai) and is very much part of their everyday lives.

  • Famous all over the world, Hummus is another open act in every Egyptians table. ...

Egypt Festivals & Events

Ramadan: Ramadan is perhaps the most important holiday in Egypt. It occurs on the ninth month of the Muslim lunar year and is a time of blessings and prayers to honour the revelation of the first verses of the Qur'an to the Prophet Muhammad. Ramadan is also a time of fasting where Muslims evade food and drink from sunrise to sunset throughout the month.

Eid al-Fitr: Eid al-Fitre signifies the end of the month of Ramadan or in other words is a festival for the breaking of the fast. In many of the cities there are big celebrations for this and a lot of feasting. Many Egyptians who can afford it, take time to travel and others gather in the streets waiting for sheep and cows to be slaughtered after the Morning Prayer when the holiday arrives.

Abu Simbel Festival: Ramses II created a large temple at Abu Simbel so that the internal chamber would light up twice a year; in February, on the day he took the throne and in October, the anniversary of his birthday. Every year the Abu Simbel Festival draws a crowd before sunrise to witness the jet of light progressively creeping through the stone and enlightening the sculptures of Ramses, Ra and Amun in the central chamber.

Here are just a few of the key religious events, contemporary festivals and folklore celebrations to keep in mind when you're planning your Egyptian adventure.

  • Coptic Orthodox Christmas.

  • Abu Simbel Sun Festival (February)

  • Coptic Orthodox Easter.

  • Sham Ennessim.

  • Sandbox Music Festival.

  • Eid al-Adha.
