Send a parcel to Gambia from only £36.95



The Gambia

The Gambia (often simply called “Gambia”) gets its name from the Gambia River, which flows through the country’s centre into the Atlantic. Despite being the smallest country on the African mainland, there has historically been plenty of shipping to the Gambia from the UK and the rest of Europe, with the US and Japan recently getting involved as well.
