Here are some pics of the snow this week in Mountain Zebra National Park, mostly on the Kranskop Loop and higher-lying areas of the Park:

and there was even enough snow for an attempt at a snowman!

Wow I've seen now photos of 2 parks with snow. Wonder if it snowed in Golden Gate. Van Reenen was closed so there must have been snowfalls although it can miss it even if there's snow in Mooi rivier.

Malelealea,

At sea level the possibility is very slim, but do recall of a few years back (maybe 10 -20) that it did snow on top of Table Mountain.

The closest point to Cape Town will be Franshoek (~90 km away) where I've seen and play in the snow near Wemmershoek peak. Another favourite spot for snow is Michelle's pass near Ceres.

The highest point in MZNP is about 300 m higher above sea level than Wemmerhoek peak.

Other spots close to sea level where you can find snow is Stutterheim and Hogsback near EastLonden and Mooirivier near Durban.
