Middlepits is located in the Kgalagadi desert. The land is flat and sandy and large calcium stones are found underneath the sand. As wind erosion persists these stones are becoming more visible. They often interfere with projects such as pit latrine construction. The climate in Middlepits tends to be very dry, even during the wet season, which makes growing food crops quite difficult.
There are three wards in Middlepits village.
Middlepits has a primary school, which is named Middlepits Primary, and also Kgolagano Junior Secondary School. Up to seventy percent of the students at this school are boarders; many of them come from the Boravast area (Bokspits and surrounding villages).

The population was 1121 in the 2011 census.
