The area is largely privately owned, with a number of lodges and private dwellings therefore limited access to explore unless staying over in one of the many forms of accommodation. The Crocodile reserve does however run theme activity walks. The Crocodile River which zig zags through the Cradle West has its source in the Witwatersrand mountain range, originating in Constantia Kloof, Roodepoort, Gauteng province. The first dam it fills is the Lake Heritage Dam just west of the Lanseria Airport. Just north of this airport is its confluence with the Jukskei River. Further downstream into the North West Province two large dams are located in the river, namely Hartbeespoort Dam and Roodekoppies Dam. Beyond the Hartbeespoort Dam, it passes the town of Brits. The Elands River joins downstream from the Vaalkop Dam, about 20 km further the Pienaar’s River joins its right bank, shortly after exiting the Klipvoor Dam. In the Limpopo Province, about 35 km further, the Crocodile River passes the town of Thabazimbi and meanders for many miles through a sparsely inhabited area before joining the Marico River just west of Rooibokkraal at the limit of North West Province to form the start of the Limpopo.
