Here are some examples of prices to send a parcel to Zambia. We have many options, so for a personalised quote please enter the weight of your item into the quote box below.
The Republic of Zambia is one of many landlocked countries in Africa and shares similar international shipping rates as Angola, Tanzania, Malawi, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
We offer three main services to this country, including the economically priced TrakPak service for parcels that are not urgent and when you are looking for the best priced product. We also offer DHL Air Express the premium express service for parcels that cannot wait, and need to arrive as quickly as possible, whilst the most popular service to Zambia we offer is Parcel Monkey Air Express, which is still a premium Air Express courier service, just with a day or two added to the transit time.
All of our courier services to Zambia allow you to send a parcel there for a great price, whilst enjoying full tracking door to door. The Parcel Monkey Air Express courier service is collected from your home or work address by Parcelforce, then processed via a Freight Forwarder and delivered in country generally by DHL, which means we can offer you a better price than you may obtain directly from a courier. This makes it the most popular with our customers.
As with many nations there are import prohibitions. In the case for Zambia they're not to unfamiliar and include pornography, explosives, animal skins and the like, plants and poultry. There are also duties on alcohol.
You are expected to have invoices and receipts for all items less than six months old.
Unfortunately the vast majority of Zambians find themselves living below the poverty and there isn't a great deal of trade between our two nations. But that doesn't stop many UK-residents people sending gifts back to the former British colony.
The country is implementing economic reforms which should hopefully improve the plight of Zambians and increase the level of trade between our two nations. This possibly will also entail improvements to the local infrastructure which would bring down typical shipping times.

Parcel Monkey is well organised and is very quick and professional at the UK end. I have recently sent three separate parcels to my daughter in Lusaka, Zambia. There are problems at that end. Door to door delivery has taken three to four weeks - greatly in excess of the quoted transit. There are probably several reasons but two that parcel Monkey could help with are these: (1)Requiring the recipient to quote an airway bill number before the parcels are released - yet you do not appear to advise this reference. (2)Your Lusaka representative (often DHL) have not made sufficient effort to to pinpoint the consignees address so that in every case she has to collect from the Lusaka DHL office.
I have used Parcel Monkey many times to deliver to Zambia from the UK. Delivery is as said and have had no issues. Would recommend.
I sent two boxes each weighing around 11kg to Zambia in May 2022. They arrived safely after just 7 days! I have used Parcel Monkey before and have had no issues.
I booked with parcel monkey a few times now, however it’s more that I was hoping parcels would get there a bit sooner… states 2-4 working days, sometimes wish it was earlier with 2 days and not the entire 4 days on top of a long weekend with public holidays. I find the transportation efficient, the collect to the drop off a great process! Will use them again and again when needed.
Efficient and quick
I had used this service for the first time and must admit was quite impressed. My parcel was delivered right on time and intact. Will definitely use them again. Thank you very much.
collected from the house, and I could follow every step of my parcel..was sending to Zambia...took 7 days including a weekend...so maybe 5. Arrived to the joy of my friend.The only problem I have is the expense but for such a service I think its worthwhile :)
