The father-of-two, whose organization runs chasing trips for remote customers, is thought to have been eaten by crocodiles on the banks of the Limpopo River in Zimbabwe.

The expert seeker and his tracker had left their truck and strolled into the shrub in various headings.

Soon thereafter his mutts came back to the camp without Mr Van Zyl. His rifle and effects were found inside the truck.

A protect group of helicopters, jumpers and trackers brushed the zone while companions gave out missing notices in towns and to anglers along the waterway.

Mr Van Zyl’s impressions were later spotted prompting the stream bank and trackers discovered his rucksack adjacent.

Sakkie Louwrens, who was a piece of the pursuit group, said police speculated two Nile crocodiles may have eaten Mr Van Zyl.

‘We found what could be human stays in them,’ he disclosed to The Telegraph

Police and animal nature conservation services decided to shoot the reptiles.

The remains are being tested by forensic experts to see whether they belong to Mr Van Zyl. He vanished last week after going on a hunting safari with a Zimbabwean tracker and a pack of dogs

At least four people have been killed by crocodiles in Zimbabwe in the past month.

In March, villagers cut open a crocodile and found the remains of an eight-year-old boy inside the beast.

The shocking scene was captured by an eyewitness with a smartphone in the village of Mushumbi Pools in northern Zimbabwe’s Mashonaland Central Province.

Villagers suspected the crocodile had killed and eaten the young boy, and shot the animal dead.

Zimbabwe has recently been hit by heavy rain, raising river and dam levels, which can bring crocodiles to areas where they are not normally seen.

A crocodile was recently shot dead in Beatrice, a farming community in the neighbouring province of Mashonaland East, with what were believed to be the remains of a fisherman in its stomach.

In November, last year a 13 year old boy who was fishing to pay for his school fees was killed by a crocodile in southern Zimbabwe.

Owen Chianga and his friend, Liberty Ruzivo, 15, were attacked by two crocodiles while they were fishing in the Save River near the village of Birchenough Bridge.

Nile crocodiles typically feed on fish, antelope and zebra, which they snatch from the shallows and before engaging in a twirling, drowning method known as ‘the death roll’.
