Home of the original Murder Mystery Dinner Parties

Welcome to MurderMystery.co.za – Home of the original murder mystery dinner parties in South Africa since 1990.

We’ve hosted a variety of themed murder mystery parties for all occasions, from birthday and Year End functions to corporate team building parties and much more.

Our Murder Mystery dinner parties work best with groups in increments 8 people. As long as all members of your party can read English and basically understand what they read then they can take part, regardless of age, gender, culture or occupation.

We host a simple, no-frills style of Murder Mystery that allows us to keep our events affordable.

Prior to all of our murder mystery corporate team building events your guests will be sent an invitation detailing the character that they will be playing on the night, as well as costume suggestions as guests need to source their own costumes.

Your guests then arrive dressed as their character on the night of the dinner party and set about trying to prove their innocence!

The set up of “the crime scene” for your team building events can be in a wide variety of venues and locations throughout South Africa. All we ask is that your venue has full privacy, good lighting, and has comfortable seating arrangements conducive to good communication. If you don’t have a specific venue in mind for hosting your corporate team building event then we’re happy to suggest a list of potential venues for you.

Each event will normally last for around 3 hours so ensure that you allow yourselves plenty of time to enjoy the fun and frolics of the murder mystery dinner party!

Take a look at our list of party themes and see what takes your fancy, or feel free to contact us for further information about what we offer and how you can book your party.
