But on Friday she spent time feeding other young creatures: baby elephants. The mother of a 12-year-old son, the crux of Trump's trip is focused on schools, hospitals and orphanages while she focuses on the wellbeing of children.

Trump greeted two administrators as she arrived at the school with Virginia Palmer, the USA ambassador to Malawi.

The two undertakings "are united under the goal of improving and protecting the well-being of children", the White House said of their meeting there in August.

During the Friday trip the first lady laughed after one of the baby elephants made a sudden move and she momentarily lost her footing.

The first lady visited and danced with the children at the Nest Orphanage in Limuru, Kenya.

Melania Trump has sashayed to the beat of African music while being welcomed to an orphanage in Kenya.

"I was happy that she wanted to interact more, I'm happy that she even went ahead and fed an elephant which I did not expect", said Project Manager and Head Keeper Edwin Lusichi.

The first lady also stopped at a site where ivory burns take place - a conservationist effort meant to discourage the ivory trade.

President Trump himself has no plans to visit Africa, but praised Trump's performance overseas.

After an outdoor book reading session, she was encircled by the same children she led up the driveway as they sang and danced some more.

Melania read a story to the same group of children with applauses as another child read a story about the "lion and the mouse".

The first lady was escorted on the trip by the senior warden of the park, Nelly Palmeris, and a secret service agent.

The event was meant to "highlight friendly U.S. -Malawi relations" and the pair's "shared interest in helping children and, in particular, helping girls in school", according to the White House.
