UGU SOUTH COAST TOURISM IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE SOUTHERN EXPLORER HEREBY INVITES HDI, NON PROFIT AND EMERGING BUSINESSES TO APPLY FOR A SPONSORED ADVERT IN THE SOUTHERN EXPLORER OFFICIAL ROUTE GUIDE

The Port Shepstone Lighthouse stands like a melancholy sailor, keeping his sleepless watch on the horizon, dutifully signalling to each passing ship that there is “land ahoy”. The lighthouse, too, once made a journey by sea. In the 1890’s this cast iron structure was shipped from Britain, possibly venturing around the dreaded Cape of Storms and up the coast into the warmer waters of Natal. Originally erected at Scottburgh to mark the southern point of the Aliwal

LIGHTHOUSES ARE ALL PAINTED IN DIFFERENT DESIGNS AND COLOURS, SO THAT PASSING SHIPS ARE ABLE TO DISTINGUISH THEM FROM EACH OTHER BY DAY. AT NIGHT LIGHTHOUSES FLASH DIFFERENT SEQUENCES FOR THE SAME REASON.

Southern Explorer Edition 11 Winter 2012

Shoal reef, this 8 metre high, chequered lighthouse now stands at the mouth of the Umzimkhulu River. This has been its vantage point for over 100 years, since being relocated here in 1906, in the days when Port Shepstone was still a working harbour. Now a national monument, the lighthouse still casts its watchful eye out to sea. The now-electric light flashes every 6 seconds, reaching up to 26 nautical miles into the Indian ocean.
