Muurafey is a small pond located in Bakool, a region in southern Somalia. The pond is situated near the town of Hudur and covers an area of around 1 square kilometer. It is surrounded by lush vegetation and is fed by small streams from the nearby hills.

The water in Muurafey is relatively shallow, with an average depth of around 2 meters. The pond is home to a variety of aquatic plants and animals, including fish, frogs, and water birds. The water is clear and has a greenish hue due to the presence of algae.

The surrounding area of Muurafey is mostly dry and arid, making the pond an important source of water for local communities. It is also used for irrigation purposes, with farmers using the water for their crops. In addition, the pond is a popular spot for fishing and attracts visitors from nearby towns and villages.

Despite its importance as a water source, Muurafey is facing environmental challenges such as overfishing, pollution, and deforestation.
