So winter has officially arrived across SA this week. But as always the arrival of winter holds a silver lining for adventurous travellers who are keen to get out and see the snow!
SA is currently experiencing the first of what is likely to be many more cold fronts for winter, with snow hitting the Drakenberg region, and the Southern-border ski resort Afriski sharing pics of some serious snowfalls.
