Birkenhead House can be found in South Africa’s whale watching capital: the seaside town of Hermanus. On the Southern coast of South Africa, Birkenhead is perched upon a rocky cliff, overlooking Walker Bay and  the country’s most unspoiled whale sanctuary. Hermanus is only 90 kilometers away from the Cape Winelands, and only 120 kilometers from Cape Town, making it a central and memorable stop during your South African holiday.
