The climate of Kololi (Gambia)
Kololi is located in the western part of Gambia on the Atlantic coast. Kololi is one of the most important tourist attractions in Gambia and is a very vibrant town during high season. The many beach bars and restaurants make this a very nice place to stay for any tourist. The local population sells all kinds of local products and art objects on the local market. Kololi is completely surrounded by the Bijilo forest.
Just like the rest of Gambia Kololi enjoys a tropical savannah climate. The climate can be divided into two parts. The rainy season is from the second part of June till the second part of October; the wettest month is August. During the dry period temperatures are high. However, temperatures here are not as high as in the interior because of the tempering effect of the northeasterly trade wind. Because of this influence temperatures drop during the evening which means you do not need air conditioning during the night.
