The totem pole was carved in Gyergyószentmiklós and it traveled nearly 7 thousand miles to its present destination south-east of Dakhla city, Western Sahara.
The six Székely participants of the rally said it was important to erect a totem pole to commemorate to all Hungarian travelers and adventurers in Africa. “This monument has been erected to the memory of all Hungarian explorers, cartographers, and adventurers who set out to explore the world looking for fascinating things around the globe” said one of the participants of the rally Lehel Lukács.
