Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef is pleased to announce that we won the ‘Best Green Tourism Initiative’ award in the Gourmet Traveller 2010 Travel Awards.
“Since it opened in 2008, Sal Salis has been the vanguard of conservation tourism, introducing visitors to Cape Range National Park and Ningaloo Reef while ensuring there is minimal impact on the landscape. Guests stay in nine safari-style tents that sit above the spinifex and saltbush crusted dunes and subsist on solar power, chemical free linen and daily water rations. The privations are more than offset by the pleasures of sunset cocktails, lamplight dinners and the wonders of one of the world’s great reefs. Mammoth whale sharks stalk the waters from March to July, humpbacks migrate from July to November and there are year round thrills from turtles, rays and the myriad fish that live on the reef. Terra firma offers further diversions in the form of fossil and wallaby filled walks through the limestone gorges of Cape Range and stunning wildflower displays.”
