How much does Image stabilization make a difference?

i posted on the Sony side looking for a camera to take on a safari. I’m not a real photographer but don’t mind learning a new system as best I can before hand. I’ve always heard Fuji had great color so less tinkering required. My biggest hang up currently is image stabilization. I don’t own a SLR or mirrorless camera. Honestly all I currently have is my phone. Amazing how far they’ve come. But I want a camera that’s going to compliment the trip. I won’t be doing any video. With a hand held camera should I really be looking of IS or am I ok without it? If leaning out the top of a land cruiser shooting an elephant can I be pretty casual about it or do I have to act like a sniper being statue still and pulling the trigger between heart beats?

would be awesome if google would just throw their IS AI into the mix
