As of March 2018, Google Maps has the old and current lighthouse positions switched. The older one, built in the mid-1800s, is much higher and would often become obscured by bad weather. A new one was built much lower in the 1910s. South African topo maps show the col connecting this to Vasco da Gama peak at 126 meters, and the lowest published elevation for the lighthouse itself is 238 meters, so I went with that.
