The Madagascar movie is now a four-part movie, hugely popular with children and adults of all ages and nationalities.
It’s easy to see why; it is a wonderful, behind-the-scenes look at a wild, enchanting world that feels out of reach for so many of us. But the truth is, the beauty of Madagascar is well within your reach and Wayfairer Travel can take you there.
ABOUT THE MADAGASCAR MOVIE
The Madagascar movie follows the adventures of Alex, Marty, Gloria and Melman; African animals who have spent their whole lives cooped up in a zoo, as they break free and find themselves washed up on the shores of the island of Madagascar. Along the way they meet some hilarious characters including a foursome of penguins, King Julian; the island's famous lemur, his advisor Maurice and the adorable mouse lemur, Mort.
The Madagascar movie opened our eyes to the wonders of this little known, incredible part of the world and it was a major contributing factor to the subsequent rise in tourism. Since then, we’ve discovered that the real magic of Madagascar lies far beyond our television screens, on its very shores.
In just 4 steps, here's how we're going to bring the Madagascar movie to life
1) WE’LL RECREATE A LEMUR PARTY AT ANDISABE NATIONAL PARK
Andisabe-Mantadia National Park is just a two-hour drive from Madagascar’s capital city, Antananarivo and is home to 13 different species of lemur including grey bamboo, woolly and red mouse lemur as well as diademed sifaka and even the adorable, elusive aye-aye (known as Maurice in the Madagascar movie). You’ll also find Indri in Andisabe; the largest lemur species. If lemurs did party, as the movie suggests, this is undoubtedly where it would all go down.

Where to stay?
We love Mantadia Lodge. It can be difficult to find luxury accommodation in Madagascar, but Mantadia ticks all the right boxes; their air-conditioned bungalows enjoy wonderful views across the surrounding rainforest and the property even has a spa and infinity pool.
