Africa is known for many things, but snowfall isn't one of them. On the odd occasion, snow can be seen in a few parts of the country and this winter season has served up some icy conditions.
As a result of an intense cold front, temperatures have plummeted and snow has fallen in various provinces this week.
The South African weather service shared some of the reports via Twitter and Briefly.co.za noted some of the photos and video.
One Bloemfontein resident couldn't believe his luck when it started snowing in his neighbourhood. His disbelief and excitement can be heard in the background.
