Djambala is a town and a commune, administrative center of Djambala District and of Plateaux Department in the Republic of Congo. It lies north of Brazzaville and near the Léfini Faunal Reserve.

Climate

Djambala has a tropical savanna climate (Köppen Aw), bordering on a tropical monsoon climate (Am). It features a short dry season from June to August due to the influence of the Benguela Current reaching furthest north, and a lengthy wet season for the remaining nine months of the year. Although temperatures are somewhat reduced by the city’s moderately high altitude, conditions are very warm and humid throughout the year even in the dry season.
