What a nice quaint spot. The rooms are very well done with excellent finishes. The staff are a treat and the addition of having a quality restaurant on your doorstep is perfect. This is a great place offering good value for your money. The noise is a possible issue for any light sleepers but other than that it's comfortable. The... More

Olga's is a good guesthouse. Rooms and bathroom are clean and nice. But if you are very tired and you need to sleep, may be is better to stay in an other area of Livimgstone. The noise coming from the trainline and the traffic nearby is very loud.

the place is very nice, rooms are modern with local material for furniture, simple but complete. Everything we needed for a good stay. Restaurant is very nice. Service a bit unequal: some things came VERY fast, others we had to wait quite a bit, in the evening, but very good overall. Only disadvantage, but not keeping us away for next... More

This is a lovely guesthouse. The rooms and the bathrooms are clean and the staff are very friendly. There are tea/coffee making facilities and the breakfast was included. The English breakfast was nice. We also tried the pizzas one evening and they also were very nice. The only downside is there is a church very nearby and so when the... More

I searched high and low for reasonable priced accommodation in Livingstone centre. This place was a little gem in the centre. The rooms were very cool considering how warm it was outside. It had good wifi in the main part of the hotel The attached Italian restaurant was lovely, with good value food. The coffee was lovely. Downside-activities were expensive... More

I was delighted with what I got and would not have chosen a pricey hotel over Olga's. Clean, hospitable, breakfast included and a modern bathroom with hot water. Italian food is available and the guest house is very close to the Town, close to the airport and Falls and next to a Catholic Church. I went to a service one... More

I wish there was a rating in-between "very good" and "average." Olga's is not "average" by any means, but I could not rate it "very good" - although with a few improvements, I think it could be excellent. First, the good. My room was spacious and spotless. There was a ceiling fan which kept it cool. The bathroom was clean,... More

Very affordable rates for exceptionally clean and neat rooms. Friendly, welcoming staff. Breakfasts were fantastic! Their restaurant offers great Italian food. Secure parking available. Staff were so helpful in suggesting activities and very willing to make arrangements on your behalf. I can highly recommend Olga's :-)

We came here after a couple of nights at Jollyboys and wished we'd come sooner. For about the same price as a double room with bathroom there, we got a spacious and pleasant room with a beautiful bathroom. The beds are big and comfy, rooms cool and quiet. The thatch roof makes it really nice. Showers are great, and you... More

Superb rooms. Spotless. All new. Fabulous restaurant. Friendly staff. Love it. So close to the falls and the parks. We moved here from waterfront which was the opposite kind of experience at 4 times the cost of Olga's. All the rooms are equally lovely and the coffee is the best coffee south of Cairo.

What can we do for Africa? Actually nothing. Africa is too big, as big as its skies and its clouds. All we can do is help a “very small Africa”, the one that we know well and that is doing well. Olga’s restaurant was born in 2003 in Livingstone (Zambia) aiming at financially sustaining a training center for orphans and vulnerable youth from Livingstone. ... more   less
