Skeem Saam actor Clement Maosa has added another achievement to his list by recently conquering Mount Kilimanjaro.

The actor was one of the 54 Trek4Mandela climbers who were sent to summit the mountain to celebrate 10 years of Nelson Mandela International Day and to raise funds that would go towards buying sanitary towels for young girls.

Taking to Instagram to share the experience, the 31-year-old revealed how difficult it was to reach the top of the mountain but said he was glad he challenged himself.

“Getting to this point was a mission and a half, how I did it I have no idea but I know for sure that there is greater power! I still don’t know how to explain the whole experience without scaring you, because there was definitely tears, sweat, etc but all worth it and hell yeah I would do it again!  I have never challenged myself this much but I’m glad I did. I’m more grateful to life than ever before and appreciate all the support and prayers from everyone more so the #GongNation #2019climbers#trek4mandela #caring4girls#nelsonmandelafoundation#imbumbafoundation  I MET MYSELF ON KILIMANJARO! , “ he wrote.

Clement joins a long list of celebrities who have previously climbed the mountain including former Mrs South Africa Nicole Capper  and Letshego Zulu , whose husband and race driver, Gugu Zulu who passed away in 2016 after trying to summit the mountain as part of the Trek4Mandela initiative.

Former public protector, Thuli Madonsela is also expected to summit the mountain in August.
