Sal Salis

Hidden in the dunes overlooking pristine beaches and coral reefs, Sal Salis is an exclusive tented camp that brings a touch of style to a remote region. Stretching 280 kms along Western Australia’s arid Pilbara coast, the Ningaloo Reef is an extraordinary yet little-known jewel in Australia’s natural heritage.

Wildlife HighlightsWildlife Highlights

Ningaloo Reef is the longest western fringing coral reef and one of the last healthy major coral reef systems in the world. Its profound biodiversity includes 500 fish species, 300 coral species, 600 mollusc species and many other marine invertebrates. From early April to mid August Ningaloo is home to Whale Sharks, the world's largest fish and Humpback whales migrate through the area twice annually. Endangered and vulnerable marine creatures including dugongs, loggerhead, green and hawksbill turtles depend on the reef and coastal ecosystems for food, refuge, breeding and nesting. Manta rays and populations of large game fish including sailfish and marlin abound in the reef's waters. Sea birds and migratory waders, use the coast, wetlands and reef waters as resting, feeding and breeding sites. Around the camp and in the Ranges there are rock wallabies, red kangaroo and euros. Eighty species of reptiles and over one hundred species of birds live on the Cape.
