We really enjoyed this trip, i went with two friends and we had two separate rooms. Our travel agent had timed it perfectly so we arrived and then went nearly immediately to look for game. We had an amazing time, saw tons of animals, loved the food, pretty flawless.
There is not a lot of activities between game drives so bring a book, or something to do in the down time.
I really can't think of any cons at all, but try to think through your flights to ensure you maximize the drives..ie try to arrive so you get the afternoon drive in before dinner.
3 nights was the perfect length, by the end we felt like we'd seen most of the stuff and could do something different..
