For anyone intrigued by Madagascar after catching it on Planet Earth II last week, we've got just the thing.

From the leaping lemurs and the towering baobab trees to the inhospitable stone forest and the vibrant markets, this videographer has caught the otherworldliness of Madagascar on camera.

With music by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, the sun-drenched, hazy light of the video ensures it's a captivating watch.
