The climate of Banjul (Gambia)
Banjul is the capital of Gambia and has a tropical savannah climate just like the rest of the country. Winters are warm and dry with many hours of sunshine; springtime is hot and summers are wet and muggy. During the summer temperatures are somewhat tempered by clouds and rain. However, it still feels very warm because of high humidity figures during this period. From October precipitation figures rapidly decrease; in December humidity figures have also reached a more bearable figure. Whoever visits Banjul should not expect a metropolis. With a population of several tens of thousands Banjul is even among the smallest capitals in the world. Banjul got its present name in 1973, before this the city was called Bathurst. Banjul is located on an island at the mouth of the Gambia River. This river flows east through the entire country.
