CROCODILES are thought to have eaten a South African hunter after human remains were found inside two animals.

Scott van Zyl disappeared last week after he went on a hunting safari in Zimbabwe.

Accompanied by a pack of dogs and a Zimbabwean tracker, the professional hunter who organises trips for foreign clients is thought to have been eaten by crocodiles on the bank of the Limpopo River.

It is believed van Zyl and his tracker left their truck and walked in different directions into the bush. The dogs later returned to the camp without van Zyl, whose belongings were found inside the vehicle.

Rescue teams were sent to search for the hunter and helicopters, trackers and divers all scoured the region.

His tracks were later spotted leading to the banks of the river and his backpack was located nearby.

Sakkie Louwrens, a member of one of the search teams, said police suspected two Nile crocodiles may have eaten Van Zyl.
