兇悍的百獸之王獅子亞利克斯（本•史蒂勒），在這裏卻成了紐約中央公園中的娛樂名人，吸引了來自各地的遊客在這裏觀賞遊玩。不過，他在這裏的生活卻也豐富多彩，至少和幾位好友的相處是其每天最興奮的事情。斑馬馬蒂（克裏斯•洛克）、長頸鹿麥爾曼（大衛•斯威默）以及胖河馬格洛麗亞（亞達•萍科特•史密斯）都是些性格開朗，能說會鬧的好夥伴。 這幾個傢伙在這裏過著好吃好喝，幸福自在的生活，對非洲故鄉的懷念早已變成盤中的美食被消化殆盡了。因為，在這裏，有整日充斥著耳闊的歡呼崇拜聲，有吃不盡的美食佳餚，有舒適現代的生活環境，甚至在斑馬馬蒂過生日時，能吃上香甜的奶油蛋糕。 但有一天，馬蒂的想法被幾個偶然間出現在中央公園裏的流浪企鵝所深深地改變了。馬蒂的好奇心也在逐漸地膨脹中驅使著自己最終作出了尋找故鄉、以及進行探險“新世界”的決定。“隆重”的生日過後，幾個好朋友正在各自享受著這美好的生活帶給他們的一切。然而，好友馬蒂卻在這個幸福的夜晚之後不翼的消失了。亞利克斯他們盡最大的努力欲尋回好友，然而，他們逃出中央公園的遭遇卻不令人滿意，第一次的失敗過後，第二次的偉大嘗試很快就到來了，而這一次，他們更是來到了開往遙遠的非洲家園的輪船上。此時，四位好友再度團聚。但他們發現，他們腳下已經不再是繁華的紐約城了，而是遙遠的馬達加斯加島……
At the Central Park Zoo, Marty the zebra is celebrating his tenth birthday, but longs to see the rest of the world from outside his pampered life at the zoo, believing that he can find wide-open spaces to run around in, like in Connecticut. Marty’s best friend, Alex the lion, attempts to cheer up his friend by singing Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York" with him. Still unsatisfied, Marty gets some tips from the zoo’s penguins: Skipper, Kowalski, Rico, and Private. The penguins are similarly trying to escape the zoo. Marty’s friends — Alex the lion, Melman the giraffe, and Gloria the hippopotamus — realize Marty’s folly and try to follow him. The four, along with the penguins and the chimpanzees Mason and his silent friend Phil, eventually find themselves at Grand Central Station, but are quickly sedated by tranquilizer darts when Alex’s attempt to communicate with humans is mistaken for aggression. The zoo, under pressure from animal-rights activists, is forced to ship the animals, by sea, to a Kenyan wildlife preserve. During their travels, the penguins escape from their enclosure and take over the ship, intent on taking it to Antarctica. Their antics on the bridge cause the crates containing Alex, Marty, Melman, and Gloria to fall off the boat and wash ashore on Madagascar.
The animals are soon able to regroup, initially believing themselves to be in the zoo at San Diego, California. Upon exploring, however, they come across a pack of lemurs, led by King Julien XIII, and quickly learn their true location. Alex blames Marty for their predicament and attempts to signal for help to get back to civilization. Marty, on the other hand, finds the wild to be exactly what he was looking for, with Gloria and Melman soon joining him in enjoying the island. Alex eventually comes around, though his hunting instincts begin to show; he has been away from the pampered zoo life of prepacked steaks for too long. The group is accepted by the lemurs, though King Julien’s adviser, Maurice, cautions them about Alex’s predatory nature. King Julien ignores Maurice’s concerns and persuades the group to help the lemurs fend off the fossa, who hunt the lemurs as prey. While initially Alex scares the fossa away and is worshiped by the lemurs, compelled by hunger, he later enters a feeding frenzy and attacks Marty. Realizing that Alex is now a threat to them, King Julien banishes Alex to the far side of the island, where the fossa live. Marty begins to regret his decision to leave the zoo, seeing what Alex has turned into, and realizing how hard it is to survive with so many predators around the island….
