Mrs. Trump seemed reticent at first but she eventually stepped down from the platform she was standing on to take a large milk bottle with a big red nipple and feed some of the orphaned elephants being raised at the park a few miles outside of downtown Nairobi. She walked up a pathway holding hands with two children and then began to sashay to the beat as she approached the building.

"Thank you to Professor Mutharika and the many other key leaders in Malawi who made me feel very welcome today".

Staff praised her for visiting.

United States First Lady Melania Trump took it in her stride when she was almost upended by a baby elephant she was feeding in Kenya. On her visit, she came to see babies being weighed and given blankets and teddy bears donated by the White House at the Greater Accra Regional Hospital.

She opened the Kenya portion of her visit earlier Friday, seeking to highlight conservation efforts by feeding baby elephants at Nairobi National Park and going on a safari there.

"I wanted to be here to see the successful programs that (the) United States is providing the children and thank you for everything you've done", the first lady said at a book donation ceremony in the school library. A group of children who live at the orphanage and had been waiting for their American visitor broke into song and dance.

"The continent of Africa is one that's extremely important to this administration, to the USA government, and I think that is evident in the fact that the first lady is making her first solo foreign trip to the African continent", Nauert said.

She also saw a site where 105 tons of ivory was burned as part of an effort to discourage the trade.

US first lady Melania Trump observes an outdoor class as she visits Chipala Primary School, in Lilongwe, Malawi, on October 4, 2018.

Her solo safari, which ends in Egypt, has shown her interest in conservation, education, children's welfare and tourism.

But there were signs of protest, too, as President Trump is not unanimously seen as a friend of Africa.

"The growth and success of a country starts with educating our children", said First Lady Melania Trump.

Her visit has included promoting the work of the U.S. Agency for International Development, whose funding President Trump has twice proposed slashing by almost a third.

But none of that was up for discussion as Mrs. Trump visited with happy schoolchildren and their teachers in the Malawian capital. Lawmakers essentially ignored those requests.
