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.
