As snow fell across the South Africa on Monday, celebrity chef Siba Mtongana and her family got to experience snow for the very first time. The family was on vacation at Aquila Private Game Reserve, on of the province’s premier game reserves, when the snow fell.

Siba said that the already magical family holiday turned out to be surreal, and of course she had to taste the snow!
