The Game Ranch "Middelkop" which means Middle Hill, derives its name from the extinct volcano which is situated in the centre of the 13,000 acre ranch. The ancient lava flows have created the ideal setting for the accommodation situated on the northern slopes.

Because of the proximity to the Kalahari, weather conditions are generally acceptable to anyone from any part of the world. Middelkop is also a malaria free area.


Tony Blackwood of Scottish decent purchased this ranch in 1928 and it has remained in the family ever since.
