The Crocodile pool is located almost at the top of the mountain, above the Temple of the Sun. Lady Walton loves to say that visitors are encouraged to climb to the top of the hill in the hope of finding a real crocodile, only to discover that it is made out of bronze.

The pool is surrounded by Agapanthus campanulatus, and varieties of Encephalarthos manikensis grows on its banks.
