Richard Smith chooses Lamai Serengeti in the far north of Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park for his One Night Only

Lamai Serengeti sits tucked amongst the rocks of Kogakuria Kopje with panoramic views of the surrounding landscape, just a few miles from where the wildebeest cross the Mara River.  The rooms are designed to fit into the complex geometry of the kopje and to make the most of this sensational location, its views and its natural space and light.  Lamai Serengeti offers just 12 rooms, these are split between two entirely separate lodges, the Main Lodge of 8 rooms and the smaller Private Lodge of 4 rooms.

Richard Smith is an owner of specialist Africa and Indian Ocean tour operator Aardvark Safaris, which he founded with a business partner in 1999. Aardvark specialises in family holidays and riding safaris, with a team of experts constantly travelling to keep abreast of new openings and old favourites.
