Sal Salis Opens 2023 Bookings Early and Extends its Season

Hidden away on the coast of Cape Range National Park, UNESCO World Heritage-listed Ningaloo Reef is one of Australis’s best kept natural secrets and one of the best places to swim with the world’s largest fish, the whale shark.

Nestled amongst the sand dunes lies Sal Salis, an intimate eco-luxury camp offering guests a peaceful escape in Western Australia where outback, reef and ranges meet and merge into one. 

With many Australians choosing to holiday closer to home this year, the 2022 season is almost completely sold out. In response, Journey Beyond has opened Sal Salis’ 2023 travel season earlier than ever before with an extended season, encouraging eager guests to secure their place in this intimate experience. 

Chief Commercial Officer for Journey Beyond, Peter Egglestone, said “It goes without saying that the past two years have been challenging for all. Lockdowns and border closures inspired people to dream of travelling beyond cityscapes. Australians can finally realise their dream of travel and explore some of this country’s amazing natural wonders.” 

Due to an increased demand for adventurous getaways, we’re opening the 2023 Sal Salis season for bookings and extending the season from the beginning of March, to coincide with the start of whale shark season, through to mid-November. “ 

Sustainability is a priority at Sal Salis, and the camp’s small environmental footprint has a big impact on guests. Taking great care to protect the fragile ecosystem, 15 spacious Wilderness Tents and one stunning Honeymoon Tent are designed to blend with the dunes and are just metres from the largest fringing reef in the world. Each has an ensuite, hot water shower, and comfortable bed with views of the Indian Ocean. 

The social heart of the camp is the recently refurbished Lodge. Here guests enjoy all-inclusive gourmet dining with chef-prepared meals served communally each night. Expect contemporary plates featuring fresh, seasonal produce, sourced locally with hints of the bush and ocean, while discovering excellent Western Australian wines, regional beers and spirits. 

For guests looking to explore beyond the white sand and venture into Cape Range National Park, many beautiful experiences are available to them. A team of passionate guides are on hand during the day to host guided snorkelling, kayak expeditions and walks in the Ranges with the chance to see Australia’s iconic animals, as well as arrange whale shark & humpback whale swims, additional charges apply.
