Even though some anxious that previous statements made by her husband, President Donald Trump, would affect Trump's visit, one resident said the complete opposite.

"Our country's great First Lady, Melania, is doing really well in Africa".

Preparations are underway at the theatre where the Sarakasi crew shall present a creative piece depicting a Kenyan girl growing in the ghetto who shines to stardom.

Melania held a baby as she thanked the orphanage staff for taking care of the children.

The First Lady's visit to Africa has offered up a softer side of the Trump administration, which is facing a critical vote on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court on Friday. "Takulandirani [Welcome] First Lady Melania Trump" was spelled out in red, white, and blue letters on the chalkboard.

She also stopped at a site where 105 tons of ivory was burned as part of an effort to discourage the trade. They then watched dancers perform three traditional dances, with Malawi's first lady appearing to explain some of the words and movements to Trump.

Egypt will be her final stop on the four-nation tour to highlight child welfare, education and tourism and conservation.

However, in contrast to visits by former US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle, her tour has not attracted large crowds or much fervour.

On her trip, Trump has promoted the advocacy initiative "Be Best", which she launched earlier this year.

She was briefed on the children living at the house for babies. As she says, the campaign is "shining a spotlight on successful programs and organizations that teach children tools and skills".

Earlier this year, President Donald Trump quietly chose to once again allow Americans to import body parts of African elephants shot for sport. "It is a attractive thing to see", Trump tweeted.
