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 Mr van Zyl and his tracker left their truck and walked in different directions into the bush. The dogs later returned to the camp without Mr 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 Mr Van Zyl.

“We found what could possibly be human remains in them,” he told The Telegraph. Forensic experts are currently testing whether the remains belong to Mr van Zyl.

The SS Pro Safaris website, owned by Mr van Zyl, states the company “has conducted numerous safaris” throughout Southern Africa. These include “elephants in Botswana to the smallest blue duiker in KwaZulu Natal”.

It goes on to list buffalo, rhino, lions, leopards and antelopes as targets for hunts. There have been previous incidents in southern Zimbabwe of people being killed by crocodiles.

  1. Howdy this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG
    editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so
    I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  2. I’m not sure exactly why but this weblog is loading incredibly slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end?
    I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

  3. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be running off
    the screen in Ie. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with
    web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.

    The design and style look great though! Hope you get the
    problem resolved soon. Kudos

  4. Hello There. I found your weblog the usage of msn. This is a really neatly written article.
    I will be sure to bookmark it and come back to read more of your
    helpful information. Thanks for the post. I will definitely return.

  5. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much
    more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme?
    Great work!

  6. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter
    a blog that’s both equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about.

    I’m very happy that I came across this during my hunt for something relating to this.
