Monte Belo Light, Mozambique

Monte Belo is a hill on the south side of the mouth of the Limpopo River in southern Mozambique. Since a light here is effective both as a coastal light and as the landfall light for the river, the site was one of the five highest priority projects of the 1908 lighthouse plan. The traditional Monte Belo lighthouse with its 14 meter (46 ft) stone tower was completed in 1914 and continues in service today.
