Katse Dam.wmv

The key to the Lesotho Highlands Water Project is the breathtaking Katse Dam in the Malibamatso Valley just below the Bokong River confluence. The Katse Dam is a major international undertaking and is now the highest dam in Africa with a height of 185m. The dam was designed by a consortium of South African and overseas consultants and the construction contract was awarded to Highlands Water Venture, a consortium of Italian, French, South African, German and British contractors on 14 December 1990.
