Middelburg (EC) Accommodation

While Middelburg is found in the heart of the Karoo, it is quite distinct from its neighbouring towns. Unlike most areas found in the semi-arid region, Middelburg has very few water restrictions because of the numerous streams provide the bulk of the town’s water supply. Furthermore, Middelburg is an incredibly safe town to live in. It is not uncommon for residents to leave their doors wide open during the day and at night, inviting their neighbours in for a cup of tea or a nightcap.

Middelburg was granted its name due to its unique geographical location. Not only is it a midway point between the cities Port Elizabeth and Bloemfontein, but also connects Johannesburg to Cape Town. Often, holidaymakers en route or travelling corporates will stop over in Middelburg for the night. It is the excellent pit stop that provides you with scenic views of the mountainside and a myriad of outdoor activities.

Found just outside of the town is the Karoo National Park. Due to the semi-arid conditions of the Karoo, the only life form that survives are the ones that are able to adapt. As a result, vegetation is sparse, where only a few plant succulents can be found in the park. In terms of wildlife, the park is home to the endangered black rhino, buffalo, Cape mountain zebra, 20 breeding pairs of black eagles and reptiles. For twitchers wishing to immerse themselves in the natural environment, there is a hide for you to spot and get up-close-and-personal with bird species.

For visitors who are willing to travel further afield, the Valley of Desolation is found just 12km out of Graaff-Reinet. Comprising of vertical cliffs and columns that stand tall over the surrounding areas, the Valley of Desolation is certainly a majestic sight to bear witness to. What makes the valley unique, however, are the unusual features that have been etched into the rock face. These etchings are a consequence of cumulative volcanic disasters and erosive forces. Furthermore, the area to which the Valley of Desolation is a part of is considered the oasis of the Karoo, where vegetation grows in abundance, birds soar in the sky and mammals roam around in the veldt.

Middelburg is a nice historical place, could have been cleaner though.
- Robyn O'Donoghue

Middelburg (EC)
Middelburg is a convenient stopover destination when travelling from Gauteng to the Eastern Cape. I enjoy the solitude and scenic beauty of the area.
- Louise Cloete

Middelburg (EC)
Middleburg is a town with little character. There are areas of excellence, but not a town of any particular character however it is quite well placed for a stop over between Johannesburg and the Cape and a good country alternative to Graaff Reniet.
