DAY 1: Ningaloo Reef
Expect a warm welcome from the Sal Salis team on arrival at Exmouth Airport, followed by a transfer to the Cape Range National Park, where Sal Salis sits in sand dunes, overlooking Ningaloo Reef and the Indian Ocean. Over the course of three nights, you will be immersed in this fragile coastal eco-system; wake to the thud of an ‘old man’ kangaroo hopping by, tune out to the sounds of waves lapping the shore and the beautiful song of the pied butcherbird. Naturalist guides will bring the natural world around you to life, from the amazing flora and fauna to the vast swathe of the Milky Way in the heavens above.
