The Gambia has a sub-tropical climate with plenty of sunshine throughout the year and average temperature highs between 29°C and 34°C. There are two distinct seasons. Towards the end of October the dry season begins and the humidity decreases; the Gambian beaches are the perfect setting for your winter sun holiday. It won’t be until mid to late June that any rain is seen again, marking the start of the green season; at this time the generally short lived showers can be spectacular and you’ll know that it won’t be long before everything is bathed in sunshine once more. The dry land soaks up the rain becoming lush and green and teaming with wildlife.
