Magic Pools of Ruaha draw water directly from centre of the earth. Can make aged people become young again

Magic Pools believed to be able to reverse people’s ages have been discovered in Ruaha National Park and they are soon set to become new tourists’ attraction in Tanzania

Come July 2024 and a strange circle of magic pools found in Ruaha National Parks, will be open for public and tourists use.

These natural wells are said to contain warm, magic water, springing up directly from the centre of the earth.

A good soaking in any of the stone enclosed pools is believed to be able to reverse a person’s age in addition to curing a number of human health ailments.

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

The Tanzania National Parks’ Senior Conservation Officer, MarckyFarreny Rwezaula said a team of experts from South Africa have confirmed the healing property 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 center of the earth.

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

“We anticipate positive reactions from the people who sample 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 of healing a number of dermatology complications.

They can also clear the skin from wrinkles, making a person look younger.

High blood pressure can also be lowered after a series of soaking in its water.

In other words, just like the Biblical ‘Pool of Bethsaida,’ the magic well in the wilderness of Ruaha National Park may serve as centre of medical tourism.

Visitors who want to reverse their ages, heal acne and cure other skin ailments or simply enjoy a relaxing outdoor warm bathtub while gazing at wildlife, may just take a trip to Ruaha.

Gasper Kahabi, the Tourism Officer at Ruaha National Park reveals that the water gushing from the earth core is extremely hot, capable of boiling meat into 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 future accommodation facilities will be established near the area.

Ruaha is the second biggest Park in Tanzania, after Nyerere. It is mapped within 20,000 square kilometers, 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, 15 species of reptiles, including oversized crocodiles and snakes as well as prides of rather big lions.
