Cape Town - Mrs South Africa Nicole Capper braved extreme weather conditions and reached the highest peak in Africa on Thursday.
Sharing a photo from the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro on Instagram, the 32-year-old mother of two reflected on the tough journey, and how she almost turned around after strong winds endangered the lives of her guide and herself.
"This was a climb on #WomensDay for all women, because we all climb mountains, some far greater than the physical one I faced," she added.
Nicole, who was airlifted from Mount Everest after experiencing respiratory complications during a Mount Everest trek to base camp in April, would not the let the previous experience damper her spirits.
Well done, Nicole!
