Exploring the human side of animal travel

This warm-hearted and feel-good factual entertainment series explores fascinating stories of animals in transit around the globe. Just like humans, they travel for work, play, medical reasons, or family reunions, and each has an incredible tale to tell. Unique access to one of the world’s largest animal travel agencies allows us to follow the excitement, from quarantine centres to the bellies of cargo planes, ensuring that we are right there with our travellers for every step of their personalised journey.

Across the entertaining episodes, we meet a wide range of animal and human characters, explore a raft of challenging logistics and discover the often dramatic and emotion-charged background behind some of the moves and the compelling and heartfelt pet and family reunions. Many of the animals featured are cute family pets, but we also meet working dogs in border security preparing for deployment and some remarkable exotic animals, like Azizi, a young giraffe needing to move from Adelaide Zoo to Monarto Safari Park in Southern Australia to be reunited with his family.
