(Newser) – Melania Trump had a busy day in Kenya on Friday during her first extended solo international trip as US first lady and her first visit to Africa. She started the day by feeding baby elephants at Nairobi National Park, the AP reports, where she learned about steps the east African nation is taking to conserve elephants and rhinos. She also went on a quick safari. Trump visited an orphanage, sashaying to the beat of African music as she was greeted by singing and dancing children. Later, the first lady had tea with her Kenyan counterpart, Margaret Kenyatta. After that, she took in a children's dance performance at the National Theater in Nairobi. Trump started her trip Tuesday in Ghana and visited Malawi on Thursday. Egypt is the final stop on a four-nation tour of the continent to highlight child welfare, education and tourism, and conservation. (Read more Melania Trump stories.)
