Sal Salis seeks to ensure that our guests experience the unique environment of the world heritage listed Ningaloo Reef. Our camp is located amongst sand dunes and surrounded by Cape Range National Park’s rugged landscape. Due to our unique location this also means that guests who travel into this area may not be supported with the same infrastructure as found in urban areas.
As we are in a remote location and due to development restrictions, strict environmental policies and our unwavering commitment to reducing impacts on our local environment, means that activities or accessing some areas of Sal Salis will include walking on uneven surfaces, through sloping walking paths and sand dunes. This can mean that guests with fitness and / or mobility restrictions may not be able to experience all of the Sal Salis facilities and activities.
A solar powered golf buggy does provide guest and luggage transport from the closest car park for check in and check out of the main lodge facility.
If your fitness to travel may be in doubt as a result of recent illness, surgery, injury, medical treatment or an existing medical condition you should seek medical advice prior to commencing your visit to Sal Salis.

In keeping with best practice eco sustainability, our landlords (The Department of Parks and Wildlife) requirements and our own sustainable policies, each tent is allocated 20 litres of water per person, per day.
Restricting fresh water run-off not only reduces the likelihood of weed growth but protects the Ningaloo Reef, as ultimately the shower water will percolate through the soil, adding fresh water to our shoreline and to the Reef.
Under normal circumstances and with judicious use, 20 litres of water should be ample for daily needs.
We have a 3-minute shower time policy, and recommend a swim in the ocean as the best way to freshen up in the morning.
Much of the power used within the camp is solar generated, and usage of it is carefully managed. Australia operates on 240V and uses a 2 or 3-pin plug.
It is important to know that while each tent has a light, and a USB phone charger (note there is no phone reception in camp) there are no power points available in them. Cameras and laptops can be recharged in the main lodge area.
People that travel with a sleep apnoea machine will need to make prior arrangement with management and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
We strongly encourage guests bring a travel battery for their CPAP machines.
