I'll preface this by saying that I went on safari before I was seriously into photography, and I don't typically shoot birds.  With those caveats, I'd strongly second ChelseaPhotographer's recommendation and take the 24-105 and the 100-400.

On my trip, at least, we definitely got closer to all the animals than I expected, and I would have had no need to lug around that 200-600.  Heck, just put the A7RIV into APS-C crop mode, and the 100-400 will still get you 26MP images out to 600mm equivalent.

I'd be tempted to take the 16-35, too, for some nice wide landscape shots, but 24mm covers you decently well on that front.  If you have the space, I'd probably include it, but a two-lens combo that covers 24-400mm (and 600mm in APS-C mode) would be a great setup.
