The Katse dam, in the Lesotho Highlands, is one of the most spectacular water features in the country. Located on the Malibamatso River, this dam was completed in 1997 and is central to the Lesotho Highlands Water Project. The dam is second in size...more
A great dam, much to explore on the way. It’s very fascinating and I will recommend one to visit this place towards the sun set, but please be extra careful when driving. The road are too scary as they go up and down the mountains
Ok so it was not your usual vacation. We had been working as teachers in thaba tseka so with no transport apart from local taxi getting around was difficult.
