Daintree Wild B&B is probably one of the best accommodations in Daintree. We had the Bee Eater room overlooking the zoo. The room was very spacious and comfortable with satellite TV. There really aren't many places to stay in Daintree and this may have been the most modern. Breakfast was good, but dining wasn't an option when we stayed. At one point, we may have been the only guests and had the zoo to ourselves.
The zoo itself is an excellent collection of native species and all animals are well cared for. My wife and I were drawn to a baby kangaroo that we named Peanut for our stay. We also had the opportunity to accompany Gil for a personal crocodile feeding one morning. When you stay, you have the zoo to yourself at all times. We didn't venture out at night because it was dark and we were just too tired, but the option is there.
One should note that Daintree is slightly isolated and dining is done between 6-8 pm. Bookings are essential because a restaurant may close up early otherwise. You shouldn't expect to drop in to any restaurant in the area at 8 pm and expect to be fed. We highly recommend the 10 minute drive to Daintree Eco Lodge for dinner. We had some of the best meals ever there.
We highly recommend staying at the Daintree Wild. It was a unique experience for animal lovers that we will talk about for years to come. While the zoo is an added bonus, don't overlook the fact that this is one of the best accommodations in all of Daintree. I don't think there is any better value in the area.
