First lady Melania TrumpMelania TrumpOnly Trump can fix vaccine hesitancy among his supporters Trump discussed pardoning Ghislaine Maxwell: book Jill Biden appears on Vogue cover MORE visited an orphanage in Kenya on Friday morning as part of her first major solo international trip.

Footage captured during her visit shows the first lady sashaying to African music as she was greeted by singing and dancing children living at The Nest in Nairobi.


According to The Associated Press, Trump was briefed on the conditions and background of the children living at the house, some of whom were abandoned or sent there after their parents were incarcerated.

The first lady also got the chance to visit the Nairobi National Park earlier on Friday, where she fed baby elephants and went on a safari.

One moment captured on video from the visit shows the first lady laughing after appearing to be shoved by a playful baby elephant.

Trump also reportedly planned to meet with Kenyan first lady Margaret Kenyatta during the visit and attend a performance at Nairobi National Theater later. 

The first lady’s visit to Kenya marked the latest stop of her four-nation tour of Africa. Her final stop will be Egypt.

Earlier this week, the first lady visited a former slave-holding facility while in Ghana. 

She was also greeted by demonstrators holding signs with phrases like "Welcome to Malawi. #NOTASHITHOLE!," referencing her husband's past remarks about the United States accepting immigrants from "shithole countries."
