MPD - safe, affordable & reliable
The tiny West African country of Gambia, the smallest on mainland Africa, is surrounded by Senegal – with a coastline to the Atlantic Ocean – and is a fairly stable nation today. A coup in 1994 saw the current regime takeover and, despite stability, Gambia has since been ruled with an ‘iron fist’. Economically, it is still hugely reliant on peanuts and peanut products although it does have big industry in fish, cotton lint and palm kernels. There is a British Embassy in Banjul and the UK works to encourage development, human rights and proper governance. Despite being nearly 2,800 miles from London, the country continues to grow slowly as a tourist destination and can boast beautiful beaches as well as wildlife parks that are a bird watchers paradise. Whatever you need to send a parcel to Gambia for, find the best service for you right here with My Parcel Delivery.
Whilst the western city of Mrikama is the largest in the country, Banjul is the capital of Gambia and home to 35,000 inhabitants. Other notable areas with demand for cheap postage to Gambia include Bakau, Farafenni, Lamin, Sukuta, Basse Santa Su and Gunjur. The waterways in the nation are an important part of both internal transport and international commercial links as they stretch far and wide. Alongside this, there is one international airport but the roads, whilst needing development, reach most corners of the country.
