A number of years ago I stayed in the luxury tents at Paperbark Camp for my now DHs birthday, so I started looking for other such "camps" in Australia. The Sal Salis at Ningaloo Reef, on the Western Australian coast came up. Needless to say that even if we don't stay at the Sal Salis, Ningaloo Reef is embedded on our wish list.
So let's start with Sal Salis, if the pictures don't make you want to go, maybe the description will: Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef is an exclusive safari camp hidden in the white sand dunes of Western Australia’s Cape Range National Park. Nine spacious wilderness tents are just metres from the water’s edge and the world’s greatest fringing coastal coral reef.
And the attraction of Ningaloo Reef? Besides being a reef that you can access from land (instead of by boat or island as in the GBR), is the specific wildlife. Usually known for the location when you can swim with the whales, it's also where you can swim the the sting ray and swim with the turtles, all at different times of the year (so you have to visit multiple times, or that it doesn't matter when you visit, there will always be something to check out!).
So, did I manage to add it to your wish list?
