Egypt in April - are mosquitoes a problem?

Jump to last reply

I've searched the web and have seen differing accounts of whether mosquitoes are a problem in Egypt, so I'm wondering if anyone can set the matter at rest. I'm going to Egypt in April - Cairo, Abu Simbel, Aswan, Luxor and Alexandria. Alexandria is a day trip from Cairo, but we'll stay at least one night in each of the other cities and take a three night Nile cruise. Do you think mosquitoes will be a problem anywhere? If so, can I get good mosquito repellant locally? I pack light, allowing myself one carry-on size suitcase that I always check, so anything I can buy locally at a reasonable cost, I do.
