The baby elephants appeared to be having a good time in the presence of their caretakers and dining with first lady Melania Trump

Melania Trump was pictured feeding a baby elephant this week, as she continued her solo tour through Africa which began on Tuesday.

The first lady, 48, who has undertaken the trip without her husband, President Donald Trump, 72, visited a national park in Kenya to highlight conservation efforts on Friday morning.

The Slovenian-born former model was seen laughing after one of the baby elephants made a sudden move, nudging her and causing her to momentarily lose her footing during the tricky task.

 

Another adventure: Melania Trump, 48, was pictured visiting the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust elephant orphanage in Nairobi, Kenya, as she continued her solo tour through Africa on Friday

Invested: The first lady went all out in a crisp white shirt, khaki riding pants and a bright white safari hat, which she wore while being driven around the sanctuary

Fun in the sun! The Slovenian-born former model also had the chance to bottle feed baby elephants

Kenya is the third stop on Melania’s Africa tour, which began on Tuesday with a trip to Ghana, which was followed by a visit to Malawi on Thursday

She fed formula milk to two of the elephants raised at at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust elephant orphanage in Nairobi, Kenya, before reaching out to others, patting one on the back and stroking the ear of another.

The young elephants looked to be having the time of their lives, as their carers and Melania’s attentive bodyguards watched on.

Dressed in safari-style tan trousers, a white shirt and knee-high boots, Melania put on a chic display in the park, where she climbed into an open-air vehicle for the safari, taking photos on her iPhone and peering through binoculars for a closer look at zebras, giraffes, impalas, rhinos and hippos bobbing in water.

Sporting a pair of binoculars, Melania was seen gazing through the lenses to admire her surroundings.

Her first-ever visit to Africa is also her first extended solo international trip as first lady, during which she is helping to promote child welfare and education.

Further details about her trip will likely come to light next week, when ABC News will air an exclusive sit-down interview with Melania as part of a special edition of 20/20.

According to a release issued by the network, the ‘wide-ranging interview’ with Tom Llamas, which took place during the first few days of Melania’s Africa trip, will feature as part of Being Melania: The First Lady, which is set to air on Friday, October 12 at 10pm ET.

However, it is understood that the safari was intended to help Melania learn more about steps the East African nation is taking to conserve elephants, rhinos and other wildlife.

She also saw a site where 105 tons of ivory was burned as part of an effort to discourage the trade, and signed a guest book at the site.
