United States First Lady Melania Trump is expected in Kenya on Friday as part of her first solo international trip as FLOTUS

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

Regardless of the controversy surrounding the Trump administration and Melania Trump's extended family, her communications director Stephanie Grisham told the New York Times that this happier Melania Trump is simply the first lady she knows.

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.

She also went to Ghana's Obama Hall, named after President Barack Obama after his visit to Africa in 2009.

Despite the backlash she has received online, Melania has taken to Twitter with a series of videos and messages to update her followers of her time in Africa.

He said Melania Trump's trip will only make a real difference if she is able to persuade President Trump, upon her return, of the value of USA investments in Africa. To say her visit didn't get off to a warm start would be an understatement. Upon her departure, the first lady gifted children with dozens of "Be Best" soccer balls, tote bags and school supplies.

The Kenya Wildlife Service headquarters is also anticipating a visit by Melania Trump.

During her tour on Wednesday, Melania Trump walked slowly with a guide through various wings, asking questions.

A batch of 1.4 million books donated Thursday brought to almost 10 million the total Malawi has received in recent years under USAID's national reading program, officials said. The people love her, and she loves them! "We want his wife to see it that Africans needs global aid particular on reproductive health which Trump cut which is affecting women and young girls negatively", says Racheal working in health sector in Malawi.

US First Lady Melania Trump arrived in Kenya on Thursday night, to a busy schedule of the East African nation, before heading to Egypt.

He believes that President Trump's behavior does not affect the first lady's visit to Africa.

The first lady then visited a local children's orphanage.

The two first ladies are expected to work on a plan that will see the two initiatives complement each other.
