akebah has indicated that this thread is about Tanzania


I have some relatives travelling in Tanzania and I need to get a document to them (either Arusha or Dar es Salaam)

How can I do this? Can I fedex to a fedex office in Tanzania or is there another way of doing this? (I have no idea where they will be staying just that they will be passing through)

Hi Akebah,
I assume Tanzania operates the Poste Restante system, whereby you address a parcel with the recipients surname, Poste Restante, and the town or city.
The parcel will then be sent to the main post office in that town.
We did this successfully in Australia a few years back, but have not tried it in Africa.
Just Google 'Poste Restante' for more info.

There is Fedex / Ups / DHL / TNT in Arusha and Dar Es Salaam.
