We stayed for 5 nights, I would say that was too long as it can get a little boring during the day, up by 5.30 am every day, game drive 6-9am nothing really to do from 9-4pm apart from a 30 minute Bush walk, sunbathe or spa treatments at London prices. I think a lot of people had a sleep during the day ready for the 4pm game drive. I would say 3 nights, maybe 4 max.
I found out on the last night you can request an escorted town visit, I wish I had know that earlier in the holiday as that would have filled a day.
