Mirage Leisure and Development was founded in 1995 by Dene Murphy who had the desire to create a development management company that would "be judged by the success of the business we leave behind". Dene began this legacy during his tenure as Development Director of Sun International and Kerzner International, having directed many iconic resort developments which include the Lost City at Sun City, Atlantis in the Bahamas, the Mohegan Sun in Connecticut and also major redevelopments of Kerzner International's Resorts in the Indian Ocean Islands.

We are judged by the success of the business we leave behind

Mirage Leisure and Development continues the tradition, having initiated, managed and successfully completed more than 48 leisure and mixed-use developments throughout Southern Africa, the Middle East and the Indian Ocean islands. Mirage Leisure and Development has successfully delivered projects covering circa 3 million m2 representing an estimated total project value of US$7,80 billion.

Our Senior Management Team has a wealth of experience, having collectively been involved in more than 160 leisure and mixed-use development projects worldwide during the course of their careers.
