NAIROBI (Reuters) - U.S. first lady Melania Trump read to children at an orphanage, fed a baby elephant, and went on a short safari on Friday in Kenya, the third country on her nearly week-long Africa tour.

Trump, who has also visited Ghana and Malawi, kicked off her day with a stop at an elephant orphanage, where she helped bottle feed an elephant and patted another, clearly having a good time.

Afterwards she donned a white hat and took a short safari in Nairobi National Park, passing by zebras, giraffes and other animals.

The first lady then visited a local children's orphanage. She delighted in holding babies and held hands with older children, who sang and danced. She also read them a book.

Trump met with her counterpart, Kenya's first lady Margaret Kenyatta, and attended a theatre performance.

Trump departs for Egypt on Saturday morning before returning to the United States.
