Sal Salis makes it easy to disconnect from the busy modern world, if only to reconnect with the natural beauty of the Ningaloo Reef. Situated within the Cape Range National Park, this isolated beachside eco-camp is committed to sustainability, with various ecological practices that are conscious of the environment. A series of eco-luxe tents are scattered among the sand dunes, with a main tent for enjoying delicious meals and lounging with other guests. During the day, explore the Ningaloo Reef via snorkeling and kayaking, or go for a swim with humpback whales. Once night falls, take advantage of one of the best spots in the world for viewing the Milky Way overhead—just zip open your tent and look up.
Wake up to the sound of waves crashing on the shore as the first light of day spreads across the horizon. Peek out of your tent and catch a wild kangaroo grazing in the dunes. This is life at Sal Salis, a beachside safari camp with well-equipped tent accommodations. For a special occasion, the unique Honeymoon Tent is also available. As part of a commitment to sustainability and conservation, the camp is almost completely powered by solar energy, and there is no internet connection or mobile phone coverage. Additionally, each guest is subject to a water allotment for washing, and there are filtered water stations for filling up your personal reusable water bottle. Organic shampoos, conditioners, and soaps are provided for guests to use. All meals and a handful of activities are included in your room rate.

Guests will gather at the lodge or on the deck for breakfast, lunch, and dinner to enjoy contemporary Australian dishes made with locally sourced, seasonal ingredients, including the freshest seafood right from the source.
