Although these fleeting and beautiful scenes are enticing, travellers have been advised to be careful through Sani Pass.

Snow Report SA has been compiling the best photos and videos of the weekend’s snowy scenes after a cold front suddenly swept through the country on Thursday night.

Much of this snow will melt over the next few days.

More than 10cm of snow fell in parts of the Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal and Lesotho on Thursday evening and Friday morning. On the Lesotho mountains, snowfall of more than 20cm was reported.

Take a look at the stunning imagery that has emerged so far.

A nice view of the town of Rhodes in the Eastern Cape sent to us by Dave Walker.

Sani Pass 11 August 2018

Sani Pass UPDATE: We have spoken to those at the top of Sani Pass and they tell us NO cars have made it up or down as yet today. The conditions are still snowy and slippery, so if you do make your way to the area today please be very careful.
