Melania Trump, who is in Africa to promote her children's welfare programme, began her trip in Ghana, where she visited mothers and their newborns, and toured a former slave trading fort.

This was followed by an announcement by the US First Lady during a reception she hosted for delegates to the 73rd Meeting of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) where she confirmed her visit to Ghana, Malawi, Kenya and Egypt.

She kicked off her busy schedule on Friday morning, with a visit to David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, which is considered the world's most successful orphan elephant rescue and rehabilitation Centre.

Mrs. Trump is on her first-ever visit to Africa and her first extended solo global trip as first lady. She came here without Donald Trump and has managed to avoid some of the more uncomfortable situations that previous visitors have faced: President George W. Bush encountered elephants mating when he embarked on a safari in Botswana in 2018.

Her stepsons have also been criticised for their passion for hunting.

The US first lady arrived at Nairobi National Park to learn about steps the east African nation is taking to conserve elephants and rhinos.

Others haven't neglected to point out President Trump's family trophy hunting quite possibly the same elephants that FLOTUS is spending time with.


"I have covered [ Melania Trump ] for nearly two years and have never seen her smile and laugh more than she is now with these baby elephants".

Mrs. Trump opened her first extended global tour as first lady on Tuesday in the West African nation of Ghana.

It didn't take long for the typically reserved US first lady to dive fully into the moment.

The first ladies are expected to walk through the gardens and watch a traditional dance performance.

The First Lady's offensive headwear choice comes just months after her explosive, "I really don't care do u?" jacket.

"When people think of Africa, they have these standard narratives", Dionne said.
