The Crocodile River reaches the end of its course when it becomes a tributary of the Komati River. At the confluence of the Komati and Crocodile Rivers lies the town Komatipoort. The town is named after the "poort" or place where the river of cows (Crocodile & Komati Rivers) combine together to flow into Mozambique. The high water bridge over the Komati river (built in 1891) is still in use today and serves as the main line from Gauteng to Mozambique and beyond. The town has one of the major railway terminals which link up to Swaziland and serves mainly as a railway and customs centre.
