Safari Encounters

Embark on your African safari private tour

Your African safari private tour or scheduled day tour, allows you to venture into the solitude of the untouched African plains and witness some of the most awe-inspiring and unique wildlife in South Africa.

Our Safari Encounters offer great game viewing opportunities and the world-renowned Big Five can be spotted all year-round (if you are lucky!). With an assortment of safari experiences, you will be sure to discover a touring package that will exceed your dreams of the ultimate African Safari Adventure - in, and around, Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban, Port Elizabeth and the Kruger National Park. 

What makes ILIOS experiences the top safari tours in South Africa?

At ILIOS, we know our Big 5 and have spent years helping adventure seekers and nature lovers enjoy memorable and safe encounters with Africa’s most majestic animals. 

  • We promise comfort and convenience in luxury, air-conditioned vehicles: we have carefully selected each safari guide for their extensive knowledge and understanding of South African wildlife, and our famous Big 5, to ensure that we will continue to help adventure-seekers and nature-lovers enjoy memorable and safe encounters with Africa's most majestic animals.


  • Sanctuary and sustainability: is key in ensuring the wellbeing and prosperity of our wildlife populations, especially in the case of our endangered species. Each one of our African Safari private or scheduled day or multi-centre tours support the conservation effort which means that while you enjoy the experience of a lifetime, you are ensuring that generations to follow can do the same on one of our multi-centre holidays or day tours.


  • 3 million hectares of wildlife reserves: offer visitors the chance to escape the stresses of everyday life and immerse themselves in an African adventure of epic proportions. Our presence across South Africa's various nature reserves offers multiple opportunities to spot the Big 5, whilst also encountering various other forms of wildlife. Take in the scenery and feel the ultimate freedom of the bushveld.


  • Nature combined with culture: means a more holistic travel experience, and the best way to gain greater insight and understanding into South African traditions, is to venture outside of the city. Our Wildlife and Warriors tour, is one of the best safari tours in South Africa and offers you the chance to immerse yourself in Zulu culture, as you travel up the East Coast to Mpumalanga. Along the way, you will learn more about our vibrant, cultural heritage.
Discover South Africa's varying landscapes, track the world-famous Big 5 and immerse yourself in the colourful cultures of our land, with African safari private day tours that are as memorable as they are impactful.
