This lighthouse is located on the Southern headland of Saldanha Bay and is within an area controlled by the Defence Force within the West Coast National Park. It was thus necessary to accompany LNS staff on their routine maintenance visit, as their vehicle has the necessary access permit.

On the drive to the head one has a good view of Jutten Island, one of many in the bay. 
Being such a beautiful day, we opted to walk the last stretch, particularly as it was downhill. The walk presented the opportunity of photographing ourselves.

This South Head lighthouse was commissioned in year 2000, replacing the previous structure. It is in excellent condition. Once maintenance activities had been completed Sammy was available to capture our presence for the proof photograph. The pinkish structure in the foreground is a water trough for the antelope in this reserve.

This was a most enjoyable lighthouse visit and we record our thanks to our hosts Samuel Adams and his colleague, Carl.
