Welcome to KATSE BOTANICAL GARDERNS
Katse, a malaria free area, is one of Lesotho’s popular tourist destination. It was named after a wealthy man called Katse who used to have a lot of livestock and provided agricultural produce to the local communities. The area is now a home to the Highest Dam Wall in Africa, Katse Dam. The gracious Katse Village, developed in the early 1990s is situated in this area and provides a beautiful view of the Katse reservoir as well as the country’s rugged mountain scenery

The LHDA launched a plant rescue project, which in turn was the start of the Katse Botanical
Garden. Mass stands of hundreds of different flowering species create a unique summer
spectacle in Southern Africa’s first botanical garden dedicated to featuring mountain species.
The garden recently received a gold award from the German Botanical Society.
