Stunning pictures of snow in Cape Town and surrounds

Beautiful pictures of the snow on Table Mountain and around the Western Cape

Updated: 30 August 2020

It was a chilly weekend for Cape Town, as snow fell all over the Western Cape. We gathered up some of the most beautiful images of snow blanketing the province, including Franschhoek, the Hottentots Hollands Mountain Range, Ceres, and even Table Mountain. 

The Table Mountain Aerial Cableway shared this incredible footage of heavy snowfall at the top of the mountain.

Locals were delighted by the thick blankets of snow in the Ceres area. 

Heavy snow blanketed the Franschhoek Valley, making for spectacular sights.

The Hottentots Holland Mountain peaks put on a dazzling show this weekend, with dense snow enveloping the mountain tops. 

The wintery scenes in Klondyke were like something out of a storybook.
