A winter wonderland in pics as snow hits SA

Last week, the South African Weather Service warned the nation about a major cold front set to make landfall from 1 to 3 July. The warning said that temperatures were set to dip below zero, residents should expect flooding in the Western Cape and the western and southern parts of the country could expect “disruptive snowfall”.

The weatherman this time was right as residents from snow-covered parts of the country took to social media to share their experiences. We found some of our favourites on Twitter and thought we’d share them with you.

Why yes. That most definitely is a lion walking over a hill peppered with snow.

And here’s a giraffe too!
