My wife and I went on a self game drive and had an amazing time. We drove around over half of the reserve and got to spend as much time as we wanted taking pictures and waiting for the perfects shots because there were no other people out later in the afternoon. We enjoyed walking the suspension bridge to the eagle's nest viewpoint to drink in the Oribi Gorge. While you're not guaranteed to see all the animals they have on the list, you have to give yourself enough time to drive the entire reserve to ensure you see as many as possible. Make sure you bring a good telephoto lens (at least 300mm) for pictures because the game are not always next to the roads.
