2D1N Eco Exploration @ Mawai & Sedili

Accommodation @ Tg Sutera Resort

24-25 Nov 2012 (Sat – Sun)
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 (aboriginal people from Endau, Johor). It is built over a freshwater swamp and entirely of materials from the nearby forest. What’s unique about the camp is that there are no walls to obstruct your view of the surrounding forest.
The forest at your doorstep is home to the Oriental Pied and Black hornbills, which are often sighted daily. Changeable Hawk-eagles and Crested Serpent-eagles nest near the camp. Maroon and Orange-backed Woodpeckers and Straw-headed Bulbuls also seen at the forest edge. Savanna nightjars plus a resident Barn owl and the Spotted Wood-owl come alive at night.
The jungle here includes extensive freshwater swamp forests along the Sedili River near camp. This forest is yet to be studied for its flora and avifauna. Otters and wild pigs are abundant in it, and the Malayan elephant is also evident from dung droppings around and along the camp’s tracks. An adult tapir had wandered into campsite! Fireflies abound in the forest along the river’s edge. Evening river cruises can be organised to watch their starry wonder.
The renowned botanist E J Corner has written an excellent chapter on this particular area of Malaysia in his 1917 book, "Mangrove and Freshwater Swamp Of South Johore". His private jetty (not far from the camp) still stands, next to the 90-year-old fig tree mentioned in his book. Oriental Pied hornbills have been seen feeding on this tree during the fruiting season.
This campsite is a wonderful place for ecology, flora and fauna studies as well as watching birds…or simply just to be close to nature. Go on the river cruise at night and watch fireflies light up the vegetation along the river banks like Christmas trees in the night. A truly fascinating sight!
Victoria School has been conducting Student Leadership Training Camps at Mawai for the past 10 years !
