The only thing I don't like about camping in Chobe is that mobile camping safaris are restricted to times they can game drive- after 11AM. It might be better to stay in Kasane and enter the park from there each AM.

Mobile safari operators in Kasane can enter the Park from the official opening hours (0530 in summer and 0600 in winter months) and exit the Park at the closing times. They are not restricted to an 1100 entry time. Mobile camping operators in Kasane, once they have entered the Park to camp for one or two nights, have the advantage that they can leave camp at the official hours (as above) and are already in the Park. If you were staying in Kasane, you would have to leave the establishment where you are staying and then drive to the gate, sign in and enter the Park. The mobile operator camping in the Park, and their guests, are already there.

There are operators who offer only game drives (of about 3 hours) and those that offer overnight camping in the Park. There is a difference!

Hi Toff

Maybe I misunderstood the rules. Once the mobile safari operators are in the park and have camped overnite, can they do game drives before 11AM?

Hi there!

Yeah, we are normally out of camp as early as we can, if we are camping we are only governed by the official AM opening time, which is when we can leave camp. Hope that helps. Cheerio

Im afraid you are misinformed The advantage of a mobile is you are away from the eastern congested area firstly and normal exit and entry times apply....not sure wher you heard one may only go on a drive at 11 am .... another advantage is all lodges etc have to get out of the park well before curfew and thus leave the park to you!!
