Cape Point is a MUST do if you are in South Africa. I rented a car and drove down with my friend. It's absolutely beautiful. The walk up to the top takes maybe 15-30 minutes depending on your speed, but it is not very strenuous and it is well worth the time.
Very nice place to spend time, you need a lot of time (I suggest coming as early as 8am and leave as the park closes) as there are lot of things to do, see and enjoy
