First lady Melania Trump walks with singing children as she visits the Nest Orphanage in Limuru, Kenya, Friday, Oct. 5, 2018.

Melania also took a tour of the site of an ivory burn - mounds of ivory ash set up to discourage poachers - and saw impala, zebras and giraffes along the way.

It may not have been the most glaring faux pas the hyper-scrutinized Trump has ever made.

"I think the U.S. -Africa relationship is much bigger than the president's comments, and it's been going on for decades and decades".

Her stepsons have also been criticised for their passion for hunting.

Melania's visit, which started in Ghana and will continue on to Kenya and Egypt, has so far attracted varied interest levels in Africa with few crowds lining streets to see her.

The criticism was not universal.

The Trump administration recently chose to again allow Americans to import the body parts of African elephants shot for sport. The visit also included promoting the work of the U.S. Agency for International Development, whose funding President Donald Trump has twice proposed slashing by almost a third.

Speaking to Quartz, Myra Gutin, a professor at Rider University in New Jersey who studies American first ladies, said she may be able to put out a "positive vibe" and engage Africans by speaking up on healthcare and education. "It's exhausted and it's old and it's inaccurate".

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

Melania began her African adventure earlier this week when she touched down in Ghana. The mother of a 12-year-old son, the crux of Trump's trip is focused on schools, hospitals and orphanages while she focuses on the wellbeing of children.

"Our message is that Melania Trump should return home to persuade President Trump to reverse the serious budget cuts his administration has proposed concerning poor countries", Rachel Pope, a doctor and social justice advocate, told the local Nyasa Times. She opened this portion of her visit with a safari in the Nairobi National Park, an activity that allowed her to highlight wildlife conservation efforts in the region. In an unexpected and potentially risky moment, a baby elephant bumped her. "I saw pix [SIC] of her earlier in the day with the colonial look going strong - white blouse and khaki trousers - but to add *that hat*... she may as well have worn an upturned middle finger on her forehead". She emerged without a smudge.

"It's really, really touching", she said.

After leaving the ambassador's residence, Mrs. Trump went to the State House for tea with Gertrude Mutharika, her Malawian counterpart.
