When we do think Africa – we have usually in mind warm weather and sunshine but never snow… but snowfalls are not unusual in South Africa and in some of the provences like Northern or Eastern Cape is a well known and expected sight in the winter season.
But when national weather service issues warning of snowfall in the Western Cape areas – what do we do? We go out and enjoy fun in the white snow!
Check out some instagram pictures from past weekend snow happines!
It’s finally Friday friends.This week has felt painfully long. . . We’ve been hit by another cold front and it’s sooo cold. On the plus side, the cold front has brought more snow. There’s more snow on 4×4 trail @official_matroosberg_reserve. So if you’re looking for a fun activity for this weekend… go play in the snow. Unfortunately there’s no ground level snow. I’ve written a blogpost about our snow days @official_matroosberg_reserve with some tips for a fun snow day. Link in bio. . . . Have a lovely weekend xxx . . . #Snow #WinterWonderland #WhiteWinter #SnowDay #CapeTownSnow [ image description for accessibility: image of a black woman holding her toddler son in her arms.They are wearing matching ivory hats and warmly dressed in thick jackets.

I have been waiting 15 very long years for the winter that we had in 2003. Murphy's law, that the first winter I love abroad there is beautiful snow in my Beauty of a Cape Town. So jealous. Wish I could get into snow fights. Repost: @louise_connell . . . . #capetown #mycapetown #capetownsnow #personaltrainer #dubaipersonaltrainer #mydubai #mydubailife #dubailifestyle
