Mawai Eco Camp (Mawai, Johor)
Mawai Eco Camp is situated by the Sedeli River, at Mawai Lama, north of Kota Tinggi town. It is designed by Singaporean architect, Mr Tay Kheng Soon, a former Commissioner of the Singapore Scouts. The camp was built and completed in late 1998 by the Orang Asli (aborigines from Endau, Johor). It is built over a freshwater swamp and entirely of materials from the nearby forest. What is unique about the camp is that there are no walls to obstruct your view of the surrounding forest.
Mawai Eco Camp is designed for outdoor enthusiasts, children, youth and adults of all ages. The camp is a haven for instilling confidence and familiarity with the outdoors and an appreciation for nature. Guided by experienced wardens, visitors learn from first hand encounters with the wilderness to recognize birds, mammals, plants and trees. You also learn outdoor skills, camp craft, first-aid, orienteering, jungle survival and issues about conservation.
Discover the vibrant jungle atmosphere and how enriching the “ulu” experience can be. Mawai Eco Camp is excellent for a weekend retreat from the excesses of the city and for getting a different perspective on life.
Excursions outside the camp are an option like a visit to a fruit plantation to sample some organically grown tropical fruits.
