About Your Walkbout Host – Aldo Antonio I love to travel, but not alone, others can do it but not me. So I like to take friends and associates along with me, or anyone for that matter who wants to enjoy a particular experience in a particular destination. My first visit to South Africa in 2017 was for 3 months and was the fulfilment of a lifelong dream. After just one month I made a decision to come back. There was just too much to experience in just one trip and importantly I didn’t want to rush through in the usual tourist style. I wanted a Walkbout Authentic Cultural and Immersed Experience. I’m amazed at the number of my friends including those on my Facebook and LinkedIn pages who want to come to South Africa but are afraid, don’t know anybody here and a whole heap of poorly informed excuses. Hence the idea for Walkbout South Africa – With Aldo. I’m planning to be back in South Africa for two (2) months December 2018 – January 2019. Here’s the opportunity and experience. I will be your host and guide for the duration of your visit. You make and confirm your flight arrangements during the period and confirm Walkbout Accommodations with me. For the duration of your stay we will Walkbout South Africa, visiting as much of the attractions, tours and local experiences as your time and budget can accommodate. You can come alone or part of a group, does not matter to me.
