Snow fell on Western Cape mountains after two cold fronts passed through the province on Monday and Tuesday, and South Africans didn’t miss the opportunity to catch it all on camera.
The mountains near Oudtshoorn, Ceres, and Worcester were painted white by winter.

Lesotho was also transformed into an alpine kingdom.
South Africa may be sunshine and sunsets most of the time, but we love it when it snows too.
