Kathu is a town in South Africa, and the iron ore capital of the Northern Cape Province. Its name means town under the trees, after the Camel Thorn Forest it is situated in.
The phrase the town under the trees was coined by an engineer working in the town in the early 1990 as part of a tourist marketing drive, together with the accompanying graphic. It was intended to be a marketing slogan. The meaning of the word Kathu has anecdotically been attributed to a porridge brewed by the local population from the powder found in the pods of the camel thorn trees.
The 700 hectares Camel Thorn Forest around Kathu is one of the largest in South Africa and is part of a 2245 hectares nature reserve that is home to several species of game, including camels and a large variety of birds. Kathu is home to one of the countrys most beautiful golf courses.
Kathu was founded in the late 60s early 70s. Kathu is perfectly in between Upington and Vryburg with about a 2 hour drive to each. Kimberley is a 3 hour drive away.
