Feeling cooped up at home with nowhere to go? No worries, these Netflix documentaries can reintroduce you to the travel world.


Our Planet
Following in the same vein as Planet Earth, Our Planet is Netflix’s approach to the docuseries world of nature and wilderness. Follow along with wildebeests and wild dogs of the Serengeti; incredible marine life in coastal waters; polar bears traversing a frozen tundra; and everything from fresh water worlds to forests, jungles, high seas, deserts and grasslands. For those who want to dig a little deeper, check out the behind-the-scenes footage.


Tales by Light
For aspiring artists or just those with an artistic eye and affection for travel, Tales by Light follows photographers and filmmakers on journeys through lesser-traveled destinations, documenting people, places and things across all walks of life. With three seasons available, viewers have a lot to catch up on.


Chasing Coral
Get a more in-depth view of our world’s coral reefs and the marine life depending on it with Chasing Coral. This informative and stunning documentary uses extensive research and underwater discoveries to educate viewers and the world on the invaluable ecosystem coral reefs provide and the importance of conservation.


The Ivory Game
If Chasing Coral’s heartbreaking and educational approach is up your alley, watch The Ivory Game. This film follows the ivory trafficking world of corruption, poachers and dealers pushing African elephants to the brink of extinction.


Night on Earth and Shot in the Dark
Another docuseries to follow, Night on Earth showcases the world from a completely different perspective — all over night. See nocturnal animals living secret lives and incredible destinations only by starlight. Go a step further, after the docuseries, and follow along as the camera crews and filmmakers did the unthinkable in the behind-the-scenes film, Night on Earth: Shot in the Dark.
