U.S. First Lady Melania Trump is currently on a tour of Africa, and is now on her first solo visit to Kenya.
 
She hopes to draw more public attention to the country's wildlife conservation. 
 
First Lady Melania Trump is on the third leg of her first solo visit to four African countries. 
 
Mrs Trump started her African tour in Ghana early this week, before proceeding to Malawi. And she arrived in Kenya on Thursday evening, where she was received by First Lady Margaret Kenyatta.
 
On Friday, the two first ladies jointly visited the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. There, they interacted freely with orphaned baby elephants, sharing love and care by bottle feeding them with milk.
 
Mrs Kenyatta commended the trust for its local efforts in rescuing baby elephants and for giving them such loving care.
 
She also briefed Mrs Trump on the“Hands Off Our Elephants” initiative, a broad-based wildlife conservation campaign that aims to curb poaching in Kenya. Kenyatta is spearheading the initiative as its patron.
 
U.S. First Lady Melania Trump will conclude her tour of Africa with a visit to Egypt.
