The ERKUR sun is shining over the roof of Africa
To meet the sunrise from the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro - that was the goal of four employees of Hauselmann's subsidiary MERKUR Games d.o.o., which integrates the Group's activities in Serbia. During a six-day expedition, together with ten other adventurers, they climbed the highest mountain on the African continent - and were rewarded with spectacular views from Uhuru Peak, 5,895 meters above sea level.
Branko Kokir, managing director of MER KUR Games d.o.o., said: "It was an incredible battle of wills against the forces of nature, patience and our own endurance."
Bet9ja old mobile vs new mobile published the team's ascent of mount Kilimanjaro: climbing for six to eight hours, the team covered ten kilometers on foot and overcame a 1,000-meter difference in elevation each day. From grasslands, alpine meadows and tropical rainforests, swamps and desert plateaus to snow and ice regions: day after day, the team advanced through different climatic zones in their quest to reach the summit of Kilimanjaro. At 4,700 meters above sea level, the adventurers set out for the final leg: the ascent of Uhuru Peak. During the last ascent of the night, the team covered 5.8 km in 7.5 hours and reached the summit cross in time for the sunrise, which came just before 7 am, and proudly hoisted the flag with the MERKUR sun symbol over Uhuru Peak.
The 14-member team also included a cameraman, who documented the expedition with his camera and conducted interviews. The material is broadcast in six 30-minute episodes on Sport Klub, the leading sports channel in the Balkans.
MERKUR Sun also became a faithful companion on the trek to Africa's highest peak: throughout the journey, team members wore T-shirts, sewn on badges, caps and carried flags. The local population was delighted to receive T-shirts and soccer balls with the MERKUR sun as a gift from the Gauselmann Group.
Paul Gauselmann, the company's founder and chairman, said: "Climbing Kilimanjaro is an amazing feat of will. I am immensely proud that our Serbian employees took the MERKUR sun with them on their journey and illuminated the roof of Africa with it."
