See an engineering masterpiece at Katse Dam, Africa's highest and second largest dam. This reservoir serves as the main water source for South Africa, in addition to providing hydroelectric power for Lesotho. A guide can share the history of the dam, as well as the stories and consequences regarding the construction itself. The views from the height of the towering walls are unmatched, but not for the faint of heart. Facilities are clean and maintained. Use our Maseru road trip planning website to visit Katse Dam on your trip to Maseru, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.
