Melania Trump is in Africa for her first extended solo trip as First Lady, and visited Nairobi National Park to see its conservation work.

The US First Lady is now in Malawi on a tour focusing on promotion children's welfare.

Soon after touch down at Kamuzu International Airport (KIA), Mrs Trump visited one of the primary schools, Chipala at Area 25, then she drove straight to State house-Kamuzu Palace.

Trump also took a brief safari as she learned more about steps the East African nation is taking to conserve wildlife.

"That's another book? You have great taste", Melania was heard telling the young boy who was reading the story to the audience. She is now on day five of her week-long tour of Africa.

While the Secret Service agent is drafting reasons to his boss as to why he had not maintained a much closer distance to save the First Lady, here are some of the reactions from across the globe.

Trump then asked and answered a series of questions with the responses "I don't remember" and "I don't know". "That's all I know". Imitating her, he said: "But I had one beer - that's the only thing I remember".

"When people think of Africa, they have these standard narratives", Dionne said. "It is a attractive thing to see", Trump tweeted.

A white woman on the roadside held up a handmade sign as the first lady's motorcade passed that said "Melania Me Too".

United States First Lady Melania Trump on Friday morning began her activities in Kenya after jetting in from Malawi on Thursday night. "Do U?" jacket she wore on the way to visit detained migrant children in Texas in June.

The first lady also stopped at a site where ivory burns take place - a conservationist effort meant to discourage the ivory trade.

If her goal in Africa was to mend relationships - which may have been suffering following the President's alleged "shithole countries" comment earlier this summer - she seems to have missed the mark completely. His administration has moved to lift a ban on some elephant trophy imports.

Egypt marked her final stop on her tour of the continent which focuses on child welfare, education, tourism and conservation.
