Parcel Delivery and Courier Services to Senegal
One of the most stable countries on the continent, Senegal is a West African nation with a multi-party democracy and an economy based around agriculture. The former French colony is bordered by Mauritania, Mali, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau and has the Atlantic Ocean lapping the western coastline. Having sent peacekeeping troops to Kosovo, DR Congo and Liberia, it is an area that works well on the international stage. Tourism – the city of Dakar is 8 hours away with a stop on a plane – is one of the major sources of income and whether it’s the vibrant capital of Dakar, colonial architecture of Saint-Louis or the beauty of the Casamance River that brings you here, it’s sure not to disappoint. With a lack of natural resources, parcel delivery to Senegal from the UK is frequently for trade in phosphates, groundnuts and fish or tourism.
