This is the Nature Education and Research Centre (NERC) complete with dormitory for 80pax, library, seminar room and a dry laboratory. The accommodation for Eco Camp is a dormitory for up to 80pax. Surrounded by forest patches and nestled next to the Endau River, the NERC is a perfect place to appreciate nature and improve one level of environmental awareness.

Endau Rompin is one of the very few remaining large tracts of lowland and tropical rainforests in Peninsula Malaysia with a core area of undisturbed natural vegetation which has existed for millions of years. The park is home to a vast assemblage of plant life, a primary sanctuary for large mammals like the Sumatran Rhinoceros, Asian Elephants, Tigers, Malayan Sun Bears, Tapirs and many other forms of wild life such as more than 230 species of birds, 43 fishes, 26 frogs, 14 snakes, 9 lizards, 3 turtles, and 179 butterflies, some of which are threatened with extinction and not found elsewhere in the world.
