Gambia weather overview

Gambia has a pleasant winter climate that has made it a prime resort for holidaymakers. From November to May, its coastal areas bordering the Gambia River are very sunny and even its rains, which fall between June and October, are of the 'liquid sunshine' variety with warm downpours interspersed by sunny periods. During the dry season, temperatures are much higher inland than on the coast but lower at night. Humidity brings some discomfort from June to October.
