As you enter Katse you will see the modern yellow building with a blue roof of the Lesotho Highlands Water Project visitor centre T2291 0377, Mon-Fri 0800-1200, 1300- 1600, Sat-Sun 0800-1200, M5, children (under 16) M2, from where popular free tours into the dam wall take place at 0900 and 1400. The centre also has displays on the dam’s construction, with a video and models of how water will be moved around when all five dams are completed in the 2020s. Nearby is the Katse Alpine Botanical Gardens T2291 00311, M5, children (under 16) M2, which was created to replant some of the indigenous flora that was disrupted in the construction of the dam, especially orchids and the spiral aloe, the latter being Lesotho’s national flower. There are three water features, a medicinal plant garden, an area of succulents and a short wild flower walking trail.
