The Nyala is a Southern African antelope found in dense forested areas, and is one of Chris's favorite African animals. They are prevalent in Mkuze Game Reserve in the northern KwaZulu Natal region of South Africa - one of Chris's favorite areas. Nyala (pronounced Nn-yaal-a) is the Zulu and Swahili name for this handsome antelope.
Male Nyala are most easily recognized by their distinctive spiral horns and vertical striped bodies. The grooves on the handles of knife Nyala, are reminiscent of those distinctive spiral horns, hence the decision to borrow the name!
