Kayes is often described as the hottest continuously-inhabited town in Africa.

The average daily high temperature in the city is 35 C (95 F), with temperatures usually peaking in April and May at an average 46 C (115 F). Prior to French colonial expansion, Kayes was a small village. Its location on the path of the future Dakar-Niger Railway, and the French need for trade centers, led to the creation of the Kayes market town in 1881.

It remains a transport hub, primarily for Senegalese trade, to this day. In 1892, Kayes became the capital of the French Sudan- Bamako replaced it as the capital, first of the state of Haut Senegal-Niger on October 17, 1899, then as the capital of all of French Sudan in 1908.
