On the main road in Katse village is the dam's visitors centre, with information, displays and a dam-viewing deck. Look for the bright blue roof a few kilometres east of Katse village. Guided tours of the dam wall (M30, one hour) depart at 9am and 2pm (weekdays) and 9am, 11am and 2pm (weekends and holidays).
