The Kribi Front Range Lighthouse, located in the Bight of Bony in the Republic of Cameroon, recently had some maintenance work after the lighthouse stopped working. The maintenance crew updated all electrical and mechanical systems at the lighthouse and it is again in working order. The 49-foot tall lighthouse was built in 1906. The rear range light for this beacon is from a church belfry. Photograph courtesy Patrice Penven and Oliver Mellett.
