New opening Olga's Guest House/Rooms
We are pleased to announce that since June 2012, Olga's has 9 spacious rooms that combine African traditional architecture and materials with the simple elegance of Italian design (the Guest House was designed by Politecnico di Milano). Our guests will therefore be able to enjoy Italian comfort while immersing themselves completely in an African environment.
All rooms are equipped with a spacious and well-equipped bathroom.
Thanks to the traditional thatched roof, the rooms always benefit from a pleasantly cool and breezy climate. In addition, each room overlooks a cool veranda surrounded by a beautiful enclosed tropical garden, where you can relax.
The rooms at Olga's are elegantly furnished with teak furniture made in the carpentry workshop of the Youth Community Training Centre.
Naturally each room is equipped with mosquito nets and a fan.
Cotton sheets, soft blankets and towels are provided for our guests and are changed regularly. The rooms are cleaned daily. There’s also a laundry service at affordable prices.
We offer Italian breakfast: sweet-smelling homemade pastries, real Italian coffee, cappuccino and refreshing exotic fruit juices. Depending on your preferences, we also offer English breakfast and Continental breakfast.
In our lounge, located in the showroom, you can browse newspapers and surf the Internet with free WiFi access.
Rooms at Olga's have been realized thanks to the Fondazione Cariplo (which supports sustainable development projects in the world), the generosity of the Diappi Family and their friends, who have already donated much of the money needed for the construction, and the coordination and experience of CeLIM and Politecnico di Milano.
The donation also allowed the rooms to be personalised with paintings by the artists of Livingstone who won a contest with the theme "Myths and legends of Zambia" (to see the paintings, the artists and the awards click here.)
