Getting to Cata
The GPS coordinates for the Cata Hall are S32.5945 degrees E27.1244 degrees.
One can get to Cata by minibus taxi, but it is a difficult and very time-consuming exercise. If you do not have a car, discuss alternative arrangements with Boniswa. Please note that it is easy to get lost. There are sign-posts, but they are small and difficult to read. Plan your journey so that you arrive in Cata during daylight.
Directions to Cata coming from King William’s Town on the R63:
Turn right onto the R352 to Keiskammahoek, just after Dimbaza. Drive into the town, over a small bridge. At the four-way intersection, turn right into the main road that runs through the town and proceed through the town. At the end of the town you will go over a bridge.
Turn left on the other side of the bridge, just in front of a building with the sign “Opstal” on it. Follow the gravel road. SS Gida Hospital will be on your left. It is 17 km from Keiskammahoek to Cata. Keep going straight on the gravel road until you see a sign to the Cata clinic. Turn right. This road hugs the hillside and winds its way to the village – the impressive Cata Dam will be on your right.
The Cata Community Hall is behind the clinic – take the slip-road to the left of the clinic. The tourism office is in the hall.
