Here are some of the photos showing the spectacular scene of the season’s first snowfall. Snow Report SA had predicted that light snow was possible in the Drakensberg around Easter time.

South Africans will not be able to take advantage of the snow as the country (like many around the world) is currently in Lockdown till the end of April, to help curb the spread of coronavirus.
