For a number of weeks a 12 months, South Africa turns right into a magical winter wonderland. The land of sunshine, pool events and braais briefly swaps the heat for snowmen, flasks of scorching chocolate and icy white landscapes. And oh, how we adore it. We love seeing households wearing beanies, scarves and gloves, laughing and having snowball fights. Some set their internal architects free and construct ‘igloos,’ others make snow angels.
Some even donned their proudly South African Faf de Klerk Speedos and braved the chilly. Check out among the coolest snow footage from across the nation this winter.
