At Parcel Monkey, we try and not only bring down the cost of international parcel delivery but also the time it takes to book a collection. We've streamlined the entire process so it should take as little as five minutes to submit your parcel's dimensions, choose the service level and request a courier to come and collect it.
It doesn't have to cost as much as you think or may have been quoted elsewhere to ship to countries in Africa, we send thousands of parcels with our courier partners so, in turn, they give us discounted international shipping rates, which we sell on our quote engine, ready for you to enjoy. Some of the most popular destinations in Africa such as Egypt, Kenya and Nigeria also have extremely quick transit times due to the delivery infrastructure on the ground in the country, making shipping goods there very easy.
Although the costs to send a parcel will be dependent on its dimensions, weight and destination we can find you an affordable international courier quickly via our quote engine. We offer a wide range of shipping services from Express to Economy through well known and trustworthy couriers such as DHL Worldwide, DPD, Parcelforce and TrakPak, plus we have our own Parcel Monkey Air Express.
We also now offer some drop off services for some countries we deliver to in Africa, so you can drop the parcel off into a Post Office or DPD Pick Up shop. This flexibility means it is very easy to send a parcel to Africa from the UK, whilst any customs documents are provided by us during the booking process
We offer international courier services to countries across the continent of Africa, and delivery timeframes can vary depending on the transport links in each country as well as the distance from the UK and the frequency of flights in and out of the country. However, no matter which service you book, the parcel will be tracked until it is delivered, so you can follow it using our tracking tool and your full-length PM order number. Our cheapest prices and the quickest service times can be found listed below: Send a parcel to

Many countries in Africa have strict customs laws that must be adhered to. However, in terms of customs documentation we provide any forms required in the booking process, so simply fill it out accurately and give a clear description of exactly what you are sending and the value of it. You should also provide working contact details for the recipient so Customs or the courier can contact them if any issues arise.
Please also check the Parcel Monkey prohibited items list to ensure the goods can be carried.
Currently there are a few destinations in Africa we do not have an international courier service for such as Ghana, Rwanda, Democratic Republic of Congo and Congo, but do try the quote engine as this is subject to change as and when services are back live with our courier partners, meaning if you can get a price, we can ship the parcel there.
