Ostrich are just Ostrich. I don't think there are any subspecies. @Cyprus is right, they need a lot of space. I would think at least an acre for a pair to be comfortable.
Actually there are different subspecies. You have the Red Necked Ostrich, Masai Ostrich, Southern Ostrich, Somali Ostrich, and the extinct Arabian Ostrich.
