Melania Trump visits baby elephants, takes safari

The Five Places Melania Trump Will Visit in Nairobi

Upon arrival in Nairobi, Kenya, Mrs Trump is expected to visit State House as her first stop.

The youngest First Lady ever was Frances Folsom Cleveland, who was just 21 when she married President Grover Cleveland in 1886.

Melania was visiting the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust elephant orphanage in Nairobi when she was photographed in khaki pants and a pith helmet.

It was the first lady's second stop on a four-nation tour of the African continent.

The singing and dancing continued outside, where she read a story to the same group of children who had walked up the pathway with her.

Earlier this year, President Donald Trump quietly chose to once again allow Americans to import body parts of African elephants shot for sport.

Trump took part in a baby elephant feeding on Friday as she visited a national park in Kenya to highlight conservation efforts.

A third added: "Melania wore a *pith helmet* today in Kenya".


"Do you see the cameras?" she said to the boy before cradling another baby.

However her choice of a white colonial-style pith helmet while on safari drew some criticism on Twitter, with one person comparing her look to that of a "colonial administrator".

"Meeting those children and understanding their different way of life is why I wanted to travel here", she said.

The national park is where 105 tonnes of ivory have been burned to discourage the trade. Trump's adult sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, are trophy hunters.

The US First Lady landed in Kenya on Thursday night and was received by First Lady Margaret Kenyatta at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) in Nairobi County. She previously visited Ghana and Malawi.

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

"We want [Melania Trump] to see it that Africans needs global aid particularly on reproductive health which Trump cut, which is affecting women and young girls negatively", Pope told the local Maravi Post.
