Forever seeking out incredible budget-friendly travel experiences, Lonely Planet Pathfinder Kash Bhattacharya of budgettraveller.org recently visited South Africa's Garden Route, road tripping from Port Elisabeth to Cape Town. Along the way he sought out the coolest coffee spots, went zip-lining in Tsitsikamma National Park, paid a visit to The Backpack, one of Lonely Planet's best value stays for 2014, and tried his hand at paragliding. Here are some of the highlights from his trip.
