Africa is a therapy on its own. with that said, let`s delve in: So your wife has gone out of her way to book in a Safari in Africa for your Second honeymoon but instead of appreciating and thanking her numerously for the kind gesture you decide it is time to end this relationship, at least, he could have gone for the trip and maybe sort out issues, sometimes separation is not always the solution, okay let me stop sounding like a marriage counsellor, so Kate Manhattanite Kate Conrad (Kristin Davis) being her. She never cancels her trip; she proceeds to go any way she just had a shock and Africa is widely known for such cures.

2.) Fyre-The Greatest Party that never happened 2019
In this documentary being in my list of the 9 Best Travel Movies on Netflix because I watched it and I almost missed my flight as it kept me glued to my seat, Billy McFarland sells expensive tickets to a now-infamous festival, stranded travellers who were duped in attending.
Created by Billy McFarland and rapper Ja Rule, Fyre Festival was promoted as a luxury music festival on a private island in the Bahamas featuring bikini-clad supermodels, A-List musical performances and posh amenities. Guests arrived to discover the reality was far from the promises.
3.) Our Planet (Limited Series)
The way this Netflix series takes the audience on a journey to see how everything on our planet is interconnected and codependent on one another is mind-blowing. Also, the scenes and the angles from which they are shot is like experiencing nature first hand in person. Our planet has earned it’s the spot to be my top nature show ever! One of the Best Travel Movies on Netflix
4.) Night on Earth (What happens when darkness creeps in?
It’s a beautiful narrating, indeed when the sun goes down, new dawn awakens. I like the way drama is unfolded creating curiosity. You will be glued to this documentary that you won’t be able to move an inch the whole day, I must warn you before you start. It is child friendly. You can enjoy as a family.
5.) Lana Condor’s African Safari Video Diary
Well, this is not one of the 9 Best Travel Movies on Netflix but worth a mention courtesy of the Incredible Masai Mara Lana recorded a very touching video diary throughout filming, where she documented all the things she saw and how much it affected her way of thinking about nature and animals.
“I am watching these lions feed on this buffalo. That’s not just lions. It’s hyenas and jackals…. I was blown away because the buffalo provided for all of them. It’s amazing.” Quipped Lana
6.) Murder Mystery
In this comedic, aptly named murder mystery, a New York couple joins a yacht party in Italy while celebrating their 15th anniversary. When a murder occurs on the boat, the couple must figure out who the killer is or take the blame themselves.
7.) Eat, Pray Love
Liz Gilbert (Julia Roberts) is a modern woman on a quest to marvel at and travel the world while rediscovering and reconnecting with her true inner self in Eat Pray Love. At a crossroads after a divorce, Gilbert takes a year-long sabbatical from her job and steps uncharacteristically out of her comfort zone, risking everything to change her life. In her wondrous and exotic travels, she experiences the simple pleasure of nourishment by eating in Italy; the power of prayer in India, and, finally and unexpectedly, the inner peace and balance of love in Bali.
This is the kind of documentary that keeps you at the edge of your seat, fear of heights? Well, Willem Dafoe narrates a succession of shots featuring impressive mountains. The narration focuses on how people have interacted with mountains throughout history.
This is one of those IMAX-type documentaries that feature one stunning nature shot after another. You might not be the kind of person who would climb a mountain even in non-coronavirus times, but the wondrous shots of nature should still serve as an escape.
The last but not the least of the 9 Best Travel Movies on Netflix, the laundromat. This biographical comedy directed by Steven Soderbergh, a woman tries to uncover the truth behind a mysterious insurance company. The movie loosely tells the story of the Panama Paper scandal.
This flix essentially starts with a vacation gone awry. Although “The Laundromat” features a dark cautionary tale related to travel, it also showcases many scenic locales. Perhaps it’s for the best since it likely won’t inspire you to travel yourself but will still provide plenty of palm trees and seas for you to enjoy on the screen.
