Sada is a settlement situated close to Whittlesea and 40 km south of Queenstown, Eastern Cape Province.

It was founded as a rural black township in the former homeland of Ciskei, but has no major shops or filling stations. It relies completely on Whittlesea for day-to-day economic activities.

Agriculture[edit]

The area is supplied with water for human consumption and irrigation of agricultural crops by the Klipplaat River, that flows out of the Waterdown Dam stream-up. In the previous century a successful irrigation scheme was operated here, by the name of "Shiloh".
