What to Pack for Egypt?
If you are looking for tips or some advice about what to pack for Egypt, our recommendation would be that you should try to avoid packing any unnecessary items. For example, Egypt is a hot country, so there is no need for you to pack in a lot of warm clothing. It is however advisable to pack in at least one pair of long pants and perhaps a lightweight jacket that you can wear in the evenings if need be. Certain parts of the country can get quite cool in the evenings, and if you book any tours that include camping it the desert, then some warm clothing is essential. The same applies if you book one of our Egypt and Jordan tours from the USA because Jordan can be surprisingly cold at night.
We also recommend that you pack in some sunscreen lotion; a wide-brimmed hat; a pair of sunglasses; some lightweight cotton tops, and a comfortable pair of shoes.
