The climate of Basse Santa Su (Gambia)
Basse Santa Su is located in the eastern part of Gambia and is the capital of the Upper River Region. Basse Santa Su is an important city in this part of Gambia and plays an important regional role, also because of the big market that is held here. Basse Santa Su itself offers little entertainment besides traditional loam houses with thatched roofs, several colonial warehouses and a catholic church. Around the city and especially along the river many palm trees grow. Most cruises over the Gambia River use Basse Santa Su as their terminal. The main source of income for the city are the cotton plantations.
Basse Santa Su has a tropical savannah climate which can be divided into two seasons: a rainy season and a dry season. The rainy season is from the second part of June till the second part of October with August as the wettest month. From February till May the weather is mainly determined by the Harmattan; a warm and extremely dry wind that carries a lot of sand, sometimes limiting vision to less than 50 meters.
