Safari TV

‘Sancharam’, an exclusive travelogue programme, was the first travel serial to storm the Indian visual media by presenting exploratory trips in their fullness. Santhosh George Kulangara, a globetrotter, started his solo journeys outside India in 1997. He has already travelled through more than a hundred countries, spanning the seven continents. The wonderful experiences and splendid sights of various countries were telecast earlier by Asianet as ‘Sancharam’, a realistic visual travelogue. The viewers, who have always been fond of travel and knowledge, welcomed ‘Sancharam’ with great exuberance. Santhosh George Kulangara went about capturing in his camera the sights of the various lands which the viewers haven’t seen, and presented before them the diversity of world countries. ‘Sancharam’ has now evolved itself into an exclusive, round-the-clock exploration channel. And that is Safari.

Safari has a unique history of transforming itself from a half-an-hour travelogue programme, telecast once in a week, into a 24 x 7 channel. Safari is a channel that brings the diversity of the global expanse to the visiting room of every Malayalee. This is the first exploration channel in India. Safari presents a slew of programmes that provide entertainment and knowledge alike. World travels, Indian travels, numerous other journeys, history, geography, culture, art and adventure - all come before the viewers through this. The curiosity to know ‘what lies beyond’ is the real motive of all the explorations of mankind. The objective of Safari is to inspire each and every viewer to take up travels, both short and extensive, for experiencing and understanding the world. Travels that take the viewer along... That is the ultimate objective of this channel.

And from then on, there was no looking back.

The accommodation of boys and girls are separate.
