The Gambia has a sub-tropical climate with average day-time temperatures reaching between 29°C and 34°C throughout the two seasons of the year.
The dry season
begins towards the end of October. After that, you will not see any rain until mid/late June. This marks the beginning of the green season
. Although the humidity increases, the showers are often short but can be rather heavy. Once the rain stops, the sunshine will soon return to dry you and everything around you.
Each season has its charms. But know that the Gambia is a great destination all year round. Especially when staying near the beach where the sea breeze and an ocean swim will keep you cool in the intense heat.
