What to Pack for Egypt?
If you are looking for some advice about what to pack for Egypt, our recommendation would be that you should try to avoid packing any stuff which you most likely not need or use. For example, there is no need for you to pack in a lot of warm clothing. One pair of long pants and perhaps a lightweight jacket that you can wear in the evenings should be adequate. If you happen to book one of our Egypt and Jordan tours or any tour that includes overnighting in the desert, then a somewhat thicker jacket would be recommended.
Other essential items would include things like sunscreen lotion; a wide-brimmed hat; a pair of sunglasses; some lightweight cotton tops, and a comfortable pair of shoes. Don’t forget to also pack in some swim suitable swimwear.
