United States First Lady Melania Trump kicked off her Kenyan tour with a visit to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust which is considered the most successful Elephant rescue Centre in the world.
Melania was accompanied by First Lady Margaret Kenyatta and is expected to meet with President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House.
Ms. Trump seemed to have a time of her life as she enjoyed feeding the baby elephants that are housed by the trust fund. One thing that caught the eyes of many is how she almost fled when one of the baby elephants tried to turn rowdy or probably was excited by the high profile visit. The first lady acted a bit cautious not getting so close to the animals.
Apart from the safari, Melania will take in a children’s performance at the Kenya Cultural Centre, visit an orphanage and also watch a performance by the Sarakasi dancers at the Kenya National Theatre.
Melania kicked of her tour in Ghana then headed to Malawi before proceeding to Kenya. While in Mlawaiw she was elated to meet and spend time with the children who are a co-pillar of her “Be Best’ Campaign.
“Meeting those children and understanding their different way of life is why I wanted to travel here. I was heartened to spend time with the students, and was honored to donate school supplies and soccer balls.” CBS News reported.
