[TN_Mag_Mahale_Article.jpg] Paul Oliver (and Oliver's Camp) has featured in numerous travel publications, the occasional scientific paper, and on American, English and Dutch Television. Some were purely promotional, some documentary in style, while others were serious science. Some were fashion shoots, and some, not so serious television.

Paul also writes articles (on an irregular basis) for local East African magazine publications. Usually these articles aim to convey Paul's personal views on conservation issues or the safari tourism industry, either photographic or hunting. Paul is not a hunter and never has been, but in an ever changing safari world where the interests of conservationist are varied, his views are often stimulating and innovative. In an attempt to convey his opinions to the hunting industry he has over the past few years contributed to 'Hunting Insight Tanzania' magazine.

His photographs appear on numerous web sites worldwide and a few have become magazine front page images that depict Tanzania's wilderness landscapes. In the coming year many of his photographs will be available to view on a new website www.sanjan.info(external link), under Sanjan photography.
