On Friday, First Lady Melania Trump visited the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi, Kenya. On this visit, she got to feed baby elephants.


What she didn’t expect was for one baby elephant to move quickly and bump into her. Luckily, the first lady wasn’t harmed and took it in her stride.

Melania Trump’s week-long visit to Africa last week led her to Kenya. During her visit, she got to highlight conservation efforts in the country.

She even had the pleasure of feeding ravenous baby elephants some formula. The two elephants were raised at the Nairobi National Park.

After feeding the elephants Trump, 48, was taken on a safari. There she got to see and take pictures of many wild animals like zebras.


On her Kenyan visit, she also got to meet the First Lady Margaret Kenyatta. On Wednesday, she went to visit The Nest Children’s Home in Nairobi.


The home is an orphanage in Limuru where Trump got to dance with the children. She was greeted by a group of orphans who welcomed her in song as they held her hands.
