Tanzania starts marketing ‘magical water’ believed to cure diseases, slow ageing

Tanzania will soon start to market the Magic Pool of Ruaha, which is believed to be able to reverse a person’s age in addition to curing several human ailments.

Located some 60 kilometres from Ulanga Ranger Post in Ruaha National Park, the pool of gushing water shooting from the centre of the earth is about to become the latest addition to the country’s tourist attractions.

The Tanzania National Parks’ Senior Conservation Officer, Marcky Farreny Rwezaula, said a team of experts from South Africa has confirmed the healing properties of the water contained in the magic pool.

The management of Ruaha National Park is constructing a special natural and outdoor jacuzzi into which people will be able to soak in the warm water spring, which links directly to the centre of the earth.

From the first day of July 2024, the Magic Pool site of Ruaha National Park will be open to tourists and other visitors.

“We expect pleasant results from anyone who try the waters of our natural hot springs,” said Ms Rwezaula.

The natural magic pool located adjacent to the great River Ruaha, which flows through the park, has been found to have outstanding properties for healing skin complications, making a person look younger after a series of soakings in its water.

In other words, just like the Biblical ‘Pool of Bethsaida,’ the magic well in the middle of Ruaha National Park may serve as a centre of medical tourism for visitors who want to reverse their ages, heal acne and other skin ailments, or simply enjoy a relaxing outdoor bathtub while gazing at wildlife.

Gasper Kahabi, the tourism officer at Ruaha National Park, revealed that the water gushing from the earth core is extremely hot and capable of boiling meat to tenderness.

“In order to reduce the heat, the water is channelled through rock-etched channels into specially built pools so that the natural pressure piping may help cool the liquid down,” said the tourism officer.

According to Kahabi, more routes and roads leading to the pool site will be built from all gates, as well as ensuring that in the future, accommodation facilities will be established near the area.

Ruaha is the second-biggest national park in Tanzania, mapped within 20,000 square kilometres, with more than 70 percent of its area yet to be fully explored.

The park is home to 15,000 giant elephants, over 20,000 buffaloes, 575 bird species, 300 ostriches, and 15 species of reptiles, including oversized crocodiles and snakes, as well as prides of bigger
