Founded in 2006 by Wilfred Chivell, the Dyer Island Conservation Trust delivers unique conservation and research programmes in a fragile marine and critically important marine eco-system. We strive to protect the largest surviving colonies of the endangered African Penguin whose numbers are at an all-time low; the globally important breeding and calving grounds of the Southern Right Whale; and the world’s densest populations of the vulnerable Great White Shark.
The Dyer Island Conservation Trust Mission:
Birkenhead House is situated on the beautiful coastline of Hermanus. It is our responsibility to ensure that our stretch of coastline is kept pristine and we do everything we can to protect the precious marine life.

South Africa's international borders are open for all international travel. Travellers require a certified, negative test result taken within 72 hours from the time of departure.
Birkenhead House, La Residence, Royal Malewane and The Silo Hotel are open and we are delighted to welcome guests from near and far to our hotels and lodges which offer the perfect tonic to the pandemic. We have taken every precaution to keep our guests and staff safe. Our hotels and lodges comply with the strictest TBCSA and WHO hygiene protocols and provide ample space for social distancing. South Africa has one of the best private healthcare systems in the world.
I would like to wish all our wonderful guests, staff, industry colleagues and suppliers a happy, healthy and prosperous 2021 - we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible this year as we overcome the challenges of the pandemic. To celebrate the new year we are offering guests the opportunity to spend 6 nights at any of our properties and only pay for 5 until 31 May 2021.
