"Snorkelling with the whale sharks was certainly the highlight - an amazing experience to be so close to such large animals."

Sal Salis is a remote, beach-side safari camp nestled in the dunes of Western Australia’s Cape Range National Park, on the shores of Ningaloo Reef. With just fifteen eco-luxe wilderness tents you will share this striking location, and one of Australia’s best kept natural secrets, with few others.

The focus of your stay at Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef is the wilderness around you, and its marine and land inhabitants. Your eco-luxe 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. You will share these magical experiences with just a handful of other guests – this is the true luxury.

Nestled amongst the sand dunes, the eco-luxe safari camp features the key comforts necessary for a relaxing and memorable stay: comfortable beds, 100% cotton linen, an ensuite eco-bathroom, delicious food, a generous bar and great hosting.

The camp has been designed to operate in tune with the fragile environment of Cape Range National Park, and as such they abide by strict principles of minimal impact and sustainability. Power is solar-generated, each bathroom has a natureloo, 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 wilderness tents are spacious and naturally comfortable, and are designed to help you escape the distractions of the modern world: they do not feature minibars, televisions, piped music or telephones. Instead, they provide simple, bare-foot luxury in tune with nature, so you can comfortably appreciate this magnificent part of the world.

Sal Salis’ main lodge, where guests gather for meals and downtime, 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 a comfortable lounge area with self-service bar – an ideal spot for relaxing during the heat of the day with a cold drink and good book.

The dining area at the lodge is where you will join with other guests for meals. After dinner sit in the open air and look up – the number of stars is simply astonishing and the location is known to be one of the best places to see the Milky Way. 

Remember Sal Salis is remote and that means no mobile phone or wifi. The opportunity to ‘un-plug’ is a highlight, but if there are urgent needs, the lodge has a landline.

You can be as lazy or as energetic as you wish, after all it’s your holiday.

15 March to 12 November 2021: From $1698 to $1898 per couple per night staying in a wilderness tent, or from $1798 to $2078 per couple per night staying in the honeymoon tent. A two-night minimum stay applies. 

Inclusions: Accommodation, all meals and beverages from a select open bar, unlimited use of snorkelling equipment, stand-up paddleboards, kayaks and wetsuits. Guided wilderness activities, which may include reef snorkelling, kayaking and gorge walks including National Park fees and permits.


Each year between mid March and July, slow-moving, gentle, filter-feeding whale sharks migrate past Ningaloo Reef following the mass spawning of coral. Swimming with them is one of the greatest wildlife experiences on earth and Ningaloo is the best place in the world to do so. From $695 per person.

From August to October, guests at Sal Salis will have the opportunity to swim with humpback whales. 35,000 of these giants migrate along their coast each year and you have the chance to share the water with them! From $509 per person.

Naturally these amazing creatures will appear outside these dates, so there is a possibility of swimming with whale sharks and humpback whales on the same day. They also frequently see and swim with other marine animals such as turtles, manta rays and dolphins. These are all wild animals and so, as experienced as they are, they never know at the start of each day what wildlife will join the marine adventure.

Prices are subject to change. Always ask for their best available rate at time of booking to make sure you get the best deal at LoveBirds.

  • This was without doubt one of the best holiday experiences I have had. I know the feeling of bliss in the simple things, like a short shower, a walk across a dusty track into a gorge beautiful beyond belief, or snorkelling quietly over a coral reef - just being!

  • We had a marvellous three nights at Sal Salis recently and we were very, very sad to leave. It was a real privilege to stay in the park just footsteps from the pristine beach and reef. The area is teeming with life and it is just wonderful to see how well the team respect the nature and work with it to ensure the camp and its inhabitants leave no trace.

  • Sal Salis is in an absolutely beautiful and remote location amongst the sand dunes with the reef just metres away. The accommodation, activities, food, wine - all done well. The staff worked hard to ensure everyone experienced the area and what was available. Snorkelling with the whale sharks was certainly the highlight - an amazing experience to be so close to such large animals. A must visit location.
