Snow Frosted Cold Front Chill

Parts of the Western Cape have been dusted in snow with the first drastic drop in temperatures, and there is more to come over the next few days.


Western Cape, South Africa – Winter is here! Parts of the Western Cape have been dusted with a bit of snow due to fast dropping temperatures. The sight is beautiful to see. We have collected some pictures from around the internet to show you the first snowfall in all its glory.

Swartberg Pass near Oudtshoorn was dusted in snow on June the 6th with it settling and sticking for some time. Some amazing photos and video were taken. The snow was in higher parts of the country, and while Snow Report South Africa predicted it wouldn’t be accessible by car, it fell in a few places beyond the high points.

Their cameras also confirmed there was some snowfall in the Matroosberg this morning. Craig Gendenhuys from Giraffe Walks captured some images and video footage for SnowReportSA.

Take a look below at the beautiful images and video captured.
