THE mountainous Golden Gate Highlands National Park and the Drakensburg Mountains were covered in snow in the early hours of the morning on Monday, 13 June.

Although the fall was not as heavy as the snow that fell in August of 2012, Divhani Maremba, Northern Region communications manager of SANParks, believes snowfall could get heavier as winter progresses.

“It’s always a marvel to see the buttress and all the mountains in the park covered in snow,” says Victor Mokoena, acting park manager.

“We believe this could be the trend for the rest of the winter.

“As we are heading for the school holidays, this should be considered a destination of choice to give children a winter wonderland experience.”
