Kempton Park is a large town on the East Rand of Johannesburg. It is home to the OR Tambo International Airport, major schools, many industrial factories and numerous entertainment and sporting facilities.

From these humbling beginnings, “Birchwood” underwent 4 phases of expansion and today boasts 665 accommodation and just over 50 conference rooms.

Birchwood seeks to cater for all conferencing and accommodation requirements as a ‘one-stop’ shop by offering transfers; full AV support; theme and décor; team-building and car rental on-site!
