Shipping Parcel to Angola - seeking information

I am looking to ship a parcel of nondescript items from Canada to an inlaw currently residing in Angola -- nothing of value, some food items, a holiday card, and some small clothing items. Package contents worth no more than $30.

My spouse is of the opinion that it needs to be sent by courier (at an exorbitant price 8x value package) or it will never arrive because of perceptions of corruption in the country. My opinion is that the package contains nothing of value so should be shipped via standard international air (still expensive) as there is little risk of non-delivery.

Would really appreciate someone with knowledge of Angola providing their insight. Thank you!

Sorry would only recommend using a reliable courier such as Fedex or DHL. Also need to but make sure that he doesnt need an import licence and that what you are shipping is authorised for importation. DHL / Fedex can guide you. It will be expensive as I am sure you have found out (but then again Angola is the most expensive place in the world...).
