Wayfaring wanderlusters sate your travel thirst at this bohemian beachside safari camp.
Glamorous globetrotters, avid adventurers throw an exclusive and beautiful bucket list bash where the Outback meets the reef. Sal Salis is a remote, beachside safari camp nestled in the dunes of Western Australia’s Cape Range National Park. Reserve all nine wilderness tents & stay with your intimates at an incredibly isolated yet stunningly beautiful location just meters away from the Ningaloo Reef.
The Lowdown Venue Setting
The national park surrounding Sal Salis is a place of rugged limestone ranges, breathtaking deep canyons and 50km of pristine beaches. It covers some 50,581 hectares and its northern boundary is just 40km from Exmouth. Wildlife is abundant with a variety of birds, emus, euros and red kangaroos commonly sighted. Cape Range offers a variety of attractions and activities for visitors interested in the natural environment. In keeping with our philosophy of ‘Wild Bush Luxury’, the focus of your stay at Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef is the wilderness around you and its marine and land inhabitants. Your luxury wilderness tent accommodation is designed to expose you to the sights and sounds of the great outdoors ... a red kangaroo grazing amongst the dunes, the beautiful song of a butcherbird or a humpback whale breaching just beyond the reef. The camp has been designed to operate in tune with the fragile environment of Cape Range National Park and as such we abide by strict principles of minimal impact and sustainability. All of our power is solar-generated, each en suite bathroom has a natureloo (marketing jargon for state of the art composting loos!), water usage is very carefully managed and no waste material escapes into the surrounding ecosystem. Guests are allocated 20L of water per person per day for showering. Native herb soaps and ecologically sound shampoos are provided. The tents are spacious and naturally comfortable but they are also removed from the distractions of the modern world (and todays modern hotel room), so do not offer the likes of minbars, flatscreen TVs, telephones (we are solar powered so are careful with how we use our power!). It's simple luxury in tune with nature - to fully appreciate this magnificient part of the world.

Amenities Dining Chairs Dining Tables Venue Features The Scene: The main lodge is raised above the sand and coastal scrub with views out onto the reef and Indian Ocean. Here you will find a small reference library with a variety of board games, and comfortable lounge area with self-service bar - ideal for relaxing during the heat of the day with a cold drink and good book. In the evenings, joining you for a spectacular sunset are kangaroos and wallaroos, which come in from the bush for their evening graze. The sunken dining area is where you will enjoy your delicious meals, sitting with the other guests and undoubtedly being amazed at the incredible food the chef has created from only a solar powered kitchen! After dinner, sit back on the Whale Deck and look up - the number of stars is simply astonishing. Known to be one of the best places to see the milky way as it stretches across your entire horizon. The lodge guides bring to life the myriad of stars and point out the many different constellations filling the sky. Down by the beach you will find a shaded area with sun loungers and an icebox filled with cold drinks. Feel free to snorkel whenever you wish, with equipment provided for you at the lodge, including wetsuits and life vests (if required). At Sal Salis, you may be sleeping under canvas but you will still have all your creature comforts. Do remember we are a fair distance from the nearest town, and totally off the grid - enjoy a couple of blissful days with no phone signal or wifi. The lodge does have a landline for those that need to make contact with the outside world. Awards & Notables

Food, Restaurants, Cafes, Bars & Lounges
Food, Restaurants, Cafes: Food at Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef is taken very seriously - you may be in a remote location however your meals will not be lacking ! Our chef creates a contemporary daily set menu focused on seasonal, local produce, with hints of bush food and of course fresh fish. We aim to support our local producers so you will find excellent Western Australian wines on offer, alongside other regions, as well as beers, spirits and a wide selection of soft drinks and juices. Meals are shared with your fellow guests and are served at either the lodge or on the deck. A hot breakfast is accompanied by fresh fruit, cereal and a selection of bread and condiments, followed by lunch later in the day. Around sunset, whether you are on a gorge walk or down by the beach, canapes are served, which you can enjoy with a glass of wine whilst the guides brief you on the following days outline and activities - often dependent on weather and tides. Dinner is the real foodie highlight - a 3-course meal which is perfectly executed out of a rather primitive camp kitchen! THIS VENUE DOES NOT HAVE ANY REPORTS AT THIS TIME. Check back again soon!
