Sawubona, Sanibonani, Dumelang, Goeie Dag and Hello!

Welcome to South Africa – a country not only rich in diversity in its languages and cultures, but also in its natural environment. Truly a world in one country, from the Mediterranean climate and white, sandy beaches in the Western Cape, to the tropical paradise of the Zulu Kingdom, semi-desert terrain of the Northern Cape, dense Southern Cape forests and wildlife-rich African bush of the lowveld.

At ILIOS Travel, we believe that travel is about people, not just places.

In life it is not only the moment, the experience or the adventure we remember; but it is also the people who stand by our sides when we find ourselves in awe, lost in adventure or finally at home after traveling for thousands of miles. We take a great amount of pride in the people who take you where you want to go, who share their history with you or those whose who take your hand as they guide you into unknown territory because we know that when you look back and think of your time in South Africa, you will not only remember the heavenly landscape or the diverse cultures but you will also remember the friendly smile of the person who welcomed you into their home with open arms in a true South African fashion.
