Melania Trump to highlight conservation at Kenyan national park

US First Lady Melania Trump visited a Kenyan safari as part of her Africa trip

The First Lady was photographed wearing a Pith helmet, also known as a safari helmet, while traipsing around the Nairobi National Park on Friday afternoon, where she was also photographed feeding orphaned baby elephants.

Mrs Trump has been received by First Lady Margaret Kenyatta and former U.S. ambassador Robert Godec at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport this evening.

Melania Trump is on a four-nation tour of the African continent, and her most recent stop was to the country of Malawi, The Hill reports.

Mrs Trump flew into Kenya on Thursday evening, after visits to Malawi and Ghana.

A secret service agent accompanying her was quick to hold her to safety, although the baby elephant calmly went on with its business while Melania regained her footing with a smile.

President of the United States of America (USA) Donald Trump, says Africans love his wife, Melania Trump, and that is a "beautiful thing to see".

Mrs Trump's solo trip is not out of the ordinary.

She arrived in Ghana on Tuesday morning.

Malawi has received a total of 9.6 million textbooks in the past few years through a US-funded national reading programme.

The first lady was greeted by students with a song, Fox News reported: "We are happy today to see you".

The first lady's visit to Nairobi National Park led to the first security panic of the solo trip when a boisterous elephant almost knocked her over, prompting a Secret Service agent to rush forward and grab her.

"The continent of Africa is one that's extremely important to this administration, to the USA government, and I think that is evident in the fact that the first lady is making her first solo foreign trip to the African continent", Nauert said.

"Our message is that Melania Trump should return home to persuade President Trump to reverse the serious budget cuts his administration has proposed concerning poor countries", Rachel Pope, a doctor and social justice advocate, told the local Nyasa Times.
