snow south africa jonkershoek stellenbosch
Snow in Jonkershoek, Stellenbosch.

While signs of spring are appearing visibly in the West Coast National Park and Franschhoek (see the photos below of flowers and snow), the mountains above the town and in Stellenbosch are even snowier than the freak snowy conditions on Table Mountain today. Everyone is being told to bundle up. Temperatures in Sutherland are reported to be going as low as -9 degrees tonight!
