Hondeklip Lighthouse

Hondeklip (Dog Rock) Lighthouse gets its name from a dog shaped rock nearby. The first light was installed in 1936 but has had some changes. The temporary light that was solar powered has a permanent light at last. The white building has been used at other venues (Port Durnford and South Sand Bluff Lighthouses in KZN) I believe the plans come from army watch towers. Copper from O’Keip mine was exported from this area. (photo by: Yolandi Visser)
