EGYPT OVERVIEW

Why Egypt: This spellbinding destination offers some of the world’s most magnificent ancient monuments, as well as a insight into age-old Islamic culture. The scenery is also unique, with the mighty Nile River creating swathes of lush greenery amid vast expanses of stark desert.

Climate: Cairo has a milder climate than the southern part of Egypt; however temperatures between May-Oct may reach 30°-36°C. The rest of the year is warm to mild, and it can get quite cold on winter nights. Although quite hot all year round, Luxor and Aswan experience their most extreme temperatures from June-August (30°-45°C). Nights are cool in winter and hot in summer (24°-26°C).

Combine With: Neighbouring Jordan or Oman, the United Arab Emirates, Israel or Morocco.

Getting There: Daily flights are available from Australia to Egypt. Flight time is approximately 18-19 hours with stopovers depending on which airline you fly with.
