As temperatures drop and icy weather sweeps through South Africa, snow has been falling in some parts of the country and the pictures are a must-see.
According to News24, several mountains passes — the Gydo, Theronsberg and Matroosberg — that were previously closed because of the snow in Western Cape have now been reopened.
South Africans close to areas affected by the snow have made an adventure out of it and gone out in their numbers to experience the snow.
Here are some snaps from around the country shared on social media.

Meanwhile, in true South African fashion, those in other parts of the country (far from the snow) have had a lot to say about the cold front.
We are such a shock loving population that we are shocked that winter is wintering in its time #coldfront— #TheAnxiousEntrepreneur (@TiisetsoMaloma) July 2, 2018
