CapeNature shared beautiful pictures of snowfall in the Swartberg Nature Reserve in the Western Cape on Wednesday [July 1]. The organisation is responsible for biodiversity conservation in the Cape.

The Cape of Storms has experienced bouts of bone-chilling weather since the beginning of June. High-lying areas within the Western Cape have been periodically covered in snow.

The Western Cape’s dam levels are currently at 63.2% capacity as of July 1.

In a statement the City of Cape Town said: ‘The dams in and around Cape Town form part of the Western Cape Water Supply System, which is an integrated and collectively managed system of dams, pump stations, pipelines, and tunnels. In addition to servicing Cape Town, the system supplies water to towns in the Overberg, Boland, West Coast, and Swartland areas, and provides irrigation water for agriculture.’
