Geography and History

Kathu is a small town in the Kalahari region of the Northern Cape province in South Africa.  Kathu, ‘the town under the trees’, came into being because of Iscor’s iron ore mining activity in the Kalahari and connected to it by road, rail and air through nearby Kimberley.  Visitors will be amazed by the sheer size of one of the world’s largest single-pit open-cast iron mines, dwarfing giant ore trucks bearing up to 170 tons of ore each load.

 

Activities

Kathu is home to one of the country’s most beautiful golf courses and the luxurious Gamagara Lodge, limestone houses characterise a desert landscape hidden by graceful palms.

A small, well-stocked game reserve adjoins the town as does the Khai-Appel Pleasure Resort.
