Refund & Substitution Policy

WildJoburg 2024 has a cancellation policy pertaining to refunds.

Refunds and/or substitutions where allowed will be subject to a nominal administration and handling fee.

  • Full payment is required on entry. An entry is only confirmed on full payment of the entry fee.
  • 50% of the entry fee paid will be refunded if an entry is cancelled in writing on or before midnight on Friday 5 July 2024.
  • Substitutions will be allowed before midnight on Thursday 11 July 2024 subject to the procedures and conditions described below. All substitutions processed prior to 11 July 2024 will be subject to a R75 administration and handling fee, which fee will be processed either as an additional fee or as a deduction from any refund, depending on which will be most applicable. From 5 July 2024 until midnight on Thursday 11 July 2024 only substitutions will be allowed, and in the absence of a substitute being found, no refunds will be allowed.
