Africa Hunt Lodge allows the opportunity to hunt and harvest the South African Ostrich. The Limpopo Province of South Africa is the premier destination in the World to hunt the Ostrich. There are no seasonal restrictions on hunting the Ostrich in South Africa, which makes it a suitable trophy year round. 

Our hunters typically hunt the South African Ostrich in conjunction with a 7-10 day African Safari. One of our Experienced and Licensed Professional Hunters will be your guide during your Ostrich Hunt. We typically hunt Ostrich Safari Style, Spot and Stalk, or by Still Hunting if you are a Bow Hunter. We can accommodate all methods of Hunting for Ostrich including Rifle, Bow, Black Powder, Crossbow or Handgun. We can accommodate hunters of any age and experience level. 

The Ostrich which we hunt on our South Africa Concession are the biggest and most beautiful in the World. 
Our Tannery in South Africa can also tan your Ostrich skins any color for you to make hand made cowboy boots upon your return home.  Other options for mounting Ostrich include Shoulder Mounts, Life Size mounts, Ostrich Foot ashtrays, Book Ends, and more. 

The ostrich, (Struthio camelus) is the largest bird and is native to Africa.

What do Ostrich look like:

Ostriches are the largest livings birds, with males reaching heights of up to 9 feet and weighing 220 to 290 pounds. Females are just slightly smaller. Ostriches have a long and slender neck with a small head. They have fluffy feathers that are generally dark and grey-brown. Their long and powerful legs have two toes on each foot, with a large sharp claw used for defense.

Ostrich Habitat:

Ostriches are found in the grasslands, savannas, and scrublands of south and east Africa. They can also be found surviving in deserts or open woodlands.

Ostrich Behavior:

Ostriches are social birds that live in flocks. Their flocks can range from having a few individuals to over 100 birds. Flocks usually have a dominant male and female who protect the group. Ostriches have several defense mechanisms to help them from predators. They can run up to 45 miles per hour and use their powerful kicks that can be lethal to predators.

Ostrich Diet:

Ostriches are primarily herbivorous, feeding on grasses, seeds, leaves, flowers, roots, and sometimes small insects and mammals. They spend most of their daytime in search for food. 

Ostrich Reproduction:

During breeding season, males will make dancing displays and calls to attract females. The females will lay their eggs in communal nests, which are often just shallow holes in the ground. Multiple females lay eggs in the nest, and a dominant male will guard it during the day while females guard at night. The eggs will be incubated for about two months, and then the young is cared for by both male and female.
