Melania Trump Feeds Baby Elephants in Kenya during Africa Tour

NAIROBI – United States First Lady Melania Trump visited on Friday an elephant orphanage and danced with orphans in Kenya as part of her five-day goodwill Africa tour.

Melania Trump, the third spouse of US President Donald Trump, was received at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust by Angela Sheldrick, CEO of the elephant, calves and rhinos orphanage that was founded in 1977 by her father.

“At a baby elephant feeding at a wildlife park near Nairobi, the first lady laughed more than reporters could recall witnessing,” White House reporter Jennifer Jacobs, who accompanies Melania Trump on her tour, posted on Twitter.

“She fed one baby its bottle, letting him wrap his trunk around it hold it himself. When he dropped it, she was startled, then burst out laughing,” Jacobs added.

The Slovenian-born former model, who arrived in Kenya after stops in Malawi and Ghana, was clad in a white shirt, pants and brown boots.

Later in the day, Melania Trump enjoined a one-and-a-half hour safari at the Nairobi National Park, where she seemed moved as she saw a mountain of burning ivory.

The authorities resort to destroying ivory in an attempt to discourage the elephants’ poaching for their tusks and to tackle the illegal ivory trade.

Melania Trump then visited Nairobi’s The Nest orphanage, where she was welcomed by children who sang a greeting song.

As part of her initiative Be Best, the US First Lady donated teddy bears, books and blankets to the orphanage, and even danced with children.

Then she met Kenyan counterpart Margaret Kenyatta, and both headed to the Kenya National Theater, where they watched a Sarakasi dancers show.

Following the show that combined traditional dance, modern music and acrobatic gymnastics, Melania Trump greeted the dancers individually.

The first lady is to conclude her maiden solo tour of Africa in Egypt on Sunday.
