Sutherland in the Northern Cape is blanketed with snow.

The cold front moving across the country is responsible for the very unusual Spring snow.

Large parts of the Namaqualand currently in full flower season is in a winter wonderland.

Sutherland resident and guesthouse owner, Alene Cloete, says the snow in September is an odd sight.

“We were all surprised because normally in September, we have a lot of guests for the flower season. So, we and our guests were very surprised. It’s unusual for September. Our water pipes were still frozen after we had minus-seven (degrees) last night.
