South Africa is heading for winter, and before we were even ready, the first snow fell along the borders of SA and Lesotho.


The Drakensberg, South Africa (15 April 2020) – Snowflakes descended from the sky and made landfall over the past few days, but almost nobody witnessed it. While we were all cooped up at home, the Drakensberg and Lesotho were dusted over with snow.

Both South Africa and our landlocked neighbour Lesotho got the first snows of the season. The first snow is quite early this year, but both Snow Report South Africa and Gauteng Weather confirmed the snow on Tuesday the 14th of April.

Snow Report South Africa has some stunning images of the snow in the Southern Drakensberg as well as at Afriski in Lesotho.

Take a look at the beautiful pictures they shared via their Facebook page below.
