On the plus side; the staff are charming, friendly and obliging. The food is reasonable. On the minus side: This place is so incredibly noisy, situated in the centre of a bustling Zambian town of 100,000 inhabitants. Children playing, trucks roaring, dogs barking, choirs practicing,...More

The pizza at the restaurant is pretty good. I know Olga's helps underprivileged Zambian youth and that's a great thing. Nonetheless, I would never recommend it to anyone who can afford something more. We prepaid $360 for 4 nights at Olga's through Expedia. When we...More

About
Description
Olga's the Italian Corner is the final stage of an educational project for the most vulnerable youth of Livingstone. It opened in 2008 as a production unit in support of YCTC (Youth Community Training Centre), a ...More certified school built by the Diocese of Livingstone and CELIM (an Italian NGO). All Olga's profits go to YCTC which provides training in catering, tailoring, plumbing, electrical, metal construction, computer studies and bricklaying to orphans and vulnerable youth. Most of Olga's employees come from the YCTC's catering course, which results in the project being self-sustainable. Olga's is located in the center of Livingstone and only 9 kilometres far from the famous Victoria Falls, easily reachable with minibus or cab. It is 15 minutes far from the airport and walking distance from the main attractions of Livingstone: bars, travel agencies, shops, museum, grocerystore, etc. Less
