Discover The Tale of Madagascar...

Take a trip to Madagascar this spring! Wander through our NEW lemur walkthrough habitat, opening 30 March!

This Easter we’re bringing the incredible island of Madagascar to you!  Join us as we celebrate this amazing habitat, the wildlife found there and just what makes this part of the world so unique!  We’ll be celebrating with an playful programme of activities including storytelling, dance, music and art – sharing the unique characteristics and culture of Madagascar.

THIS is the tail of Madagascar,

The island that broke free from the mighty GONDWANA.

And for 88 million years it evolved all alone,

Creating a world, creating life, all of its own.

Becoming a place so SPECIAL, so biodiverse,

That its animals and plants can be found NOWHERE ELSE on Earth.

But you won’t have to travel across oceans far,

To visit the truly unique MADAGASCAR.

The enchanting island is coming to you,

This spring, only at CHESTER ZOO.
