Four best friends have lived their entire life at the Central Park Zoo. An ambitious zebra named Marty, Alex the lion, a self-proclaimed king of NYC, Melman, a hypochondriac giraffe, and a flamboyant hippopotamus named Gloria.

Marty has grown bored with his daily routine and longs to experience the wild. On Marty's tenth birthday, manages to escape the zoo, but his freedom doesn't last long. Authorities sedate all four animals into a tranquil dream and ship them to a Kenyan wildlife preserve. It's not smooth sailing for them though, as they fall overboard and wash ashore on Madagascar.

Follow them while they navigate life in the wild, which truly tests their friendships.
