Manakara Range Lights, Madagascar

Thanks to A. Hovestadt for these photos of several lighthouses at Manakara on the southeastern coast of Madagascar. The approach to Manakara is from the north, and vessels must avoid a number of shoals to enter the harbor. There are three sets of range lights to assist them. The Emokala Range is the outer, or approach range, and the Manakara Range is the second, or middle range.
