She opened the Kenya portion of her visit earlier on Friday, seeking to highlight conservation efforts by feeding baby elephants at Nairobi National Park and going on a safari there.

The visiting US First Lady Melania Trump to Malawi on Thursday afternoon was caught unaware when some American health workers protested her arrival in the country over her husband aid cut to African on reproductive, maternal health and HIV/AIDS.

Everywhere she has visited during her trip across Africa this week, first lady Melania Trump has cradled infants and held children.

Melania's entourage then proceeded to the Nest Children's Orphanage in Nairobi where she spent time with children.

Egypt will be her final stop on her tour of the continent that focuses on child welfare, education, tourism and conservation.

The first lady learned about the facility and the circumstances surrounding the children. At several points, Mrs. Trump pulled out a pair of green binoculars or her iPhone to take photos and video.

Melania Trump, First lady of the United State of America on Wednesday toured the Cape Coast Castle, a former slave post.

The plane carrying the US First Lady departed Jomo Kenyatta International Airport shortly after 8am and was seen off by First Lady Margaret Kenyatta.

"She's doing a great job as first lady, I will tell you - really great", President Trump said Tuesday.

Ms Trump's focus on wildlife stands in contrast to efforts by her husband to lift a ban on some elephant trophy imports, which created a public outcry previous year. "It is a handsome thing to see".

While in the company of Kenya's First Lady Margaret Kenyatta, Melania went on to pet one of the baby elephants which apparently either enjoyed her company or did not just like her and turned against her.

The president praised his wife while she is overseas, saying, "The people love her, and she loves them!"
