When Once in a Lifetime is Just the Beginning

What began as a passion project 20 years ago has grown into the‌ ‌authority on African safari travel. From our diverse group of clients all over the world to our vast network of partners on the ground, it is the incredible relationships we have built over two decades that have made all the difference. To celebrate this major milestone, we’d like to pause and express our sincere gratitude with you.

We are immensely proud of our contribution to conservation and privileged to make so many travel dreams come true. We are inspired to share more life-changing experiences with you in the next 20 years.

With thanks,

Mohamed Baba

Mohamed Baba, CEO, ILIOS

Wow, what an incredible achievement! A very happy 20th birthday to the Go2Africa team, whom I have known and worked with closely for almost 20 years. This incredible partnership began when we were both relatively young organisations ...who - unknowingly at the time - had a great deal to learn from each other. Through many triumphs and failures, we have grown in tremendous strides both as individual organisations as well as partners in the industry and it is safe to say that ILIOS Travel can attribute an enormous amount of our success to the invaluable partnership we have built over the years.

We are extremely grateful and appreciative of the support we have had and continue to receive from your remarkable team. One can only be inspired by the passion and dedication that radiates from this incredible organisation and we are undoubtably blessed for being able to walk this journey alongside Go2Africa.

Here is to many more fruitful, insightful and exciting years together. We wish Go2Africa the greatest success in the years to come.

Great Love, Mohamed and the ILIOS Team

It’s incredible to think how almost 20 years has passed since we opened Royal Malewane and Go2Africa welcomed its first guests to Africa. It’s been a remarkable and rewarding journey working together as an industry, showcasing the magnificent wildlife and landscapes of South Africa and bringing visitors from around the world to experience the rich diversity this continent has to offer.

Happy Birthday Go2Africa – we look forward to working together for many years to come.
