Aderema Hills – Standing Stones is a community-led tourism initiative that aims to foster an authentic human-nature connection and transformational slow holiday experience that mutually benefits the community, saves the environment, and enriches the guests’ experience.
Our program runs from one to three weeks where learning from the host community, sharing your knowledge with them and the cultural immersion offers guests a rare opportunity to indulge themselves in the rich culture and farming traditions by becoming a part of the Iteso community of Aderema in Western Kenya.
Aderema is so much more than your ordinary safari experience. We’re a responsible experiences designer, a passionate community changer, and above all nature conservationists. At Oluokos, we specialize in achieving your best holiday experiences by influencing our community positively.

We believe that the best, most effective, and immediate way to help both the conservation of wildlife and the interests of the communities who own the land where our activities take place is to visit us. Through the payment of daily conservation fees – money that we collect goes a long way towards financing nature conservation.
We honestly understand that the communities can only protect the wildlife, the flora and fauna only if they get immense and tangible benefits from sustainable tourism. At Aderema by Oluokos, making nature a profitable business is an important way to ensure a long-term win-win scenario for both nature and communities.
Your visitation and stay at Aderema creates direct and indirect job opportunities with more than 95% of our staff sourced from these communities and also contributing to the GDP of Kenya.
