The African wood owl inhabits forests and woodlands of sub-Saharan Africa.



The African wood owl is nocturnal (active at night) and hunts for small mammals, birds, reptiles and insects.



African wood owls nest in tree hollows. The female lays between 1 to 3 eggs that she incubates for about 1 month. The young fledge (are fully ready for flight) at around 4 months old.
