Snowing in South Africa from the Drakensberg to Table Mountain!

As predicted, snow has fallen in South Africa this weekend… including on Table Mountain (!)… and South Africans (as well as several animals from dogs to ostriches!) are out there experiencing it. Locals have sent in photos and videos to Storm Report SA and Snow Report SA. (Please visit their pages for more pics.) Here’s a collection of some of the best.
