Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef is an exclusive safari camp hidden in the white sand dunes of Western Australia’s Cape Range National Park. Nine spacious wilderness tents are just meters from the water’s edge and the world’s greatest fringing coastal coral reef. Sal Salis accommodation and hosting style exudes ‘Wild Bush Luxury’ and guides deliver an extraordinary insight to one of Australia’s best kept natural secrets – Ningaloo Reef. Your accommodation is designed to expose you to the sights and sounds outside your tent ... a Red Kangaroo grazing amongst the dunes, the beautiful song of a Butcherbird or a Humpback Whale breaching just beyond the reef.
Enjoy a supremely comfortable bed, 100% cotton linen (500 thread count), a choice of pillows, soft bath towels, an en suite bathroom, delicious food and great hosting. The main camp building is raised above the sand and coastal scrub with views out to the reef and breakers beyond. The tents are spacious and naturally comfortable – they are not intended to be 5 star hotel rooms in the bush so do not offer TVs, telephones, minibars or other modern appliances.
Dinner is hosted against a back-drop of rich orange sunsets over the Indian Ocean and in the cool of the evening kangaroos and wallaroos appear from the bush for their evening graze. A bar and open lounge area with a small reference library provides a great spot to sit out the heat of day or enjoy a quiet sundowner. The chef provides contemporary Australian cuisine with hints of bush food and native produce; guests may help themselves to the self-service bar at any time.
The coastal reef and inshore waters of Ningaloo Reef provide one of Australia’s great marine experiences, while the limestone back-drop of the Cape Range hides deep gorges of spectacular beauty. Ningaloo is known as one of the best places on earth to see and swim with Whale Sharks and Manta Rays. It is also a major breeding area for Hawksbill, Green and Loggerhead Turtles, which are seen daily in front of the camp. Activities include sea kayaking, snorkeling, wildlife viewing, guided gorge walks, guided cruise or walk through Yardie Creek and star-gazing.
