The white pith helmet she wore as she passed by zebras, giraffes and other animals in Nairobi National Park made headlines, as Africans accused her of being insensitive by wearing the hat that was often donned by colonisers of tge continent.

Mrs. Trump visited a few of Egypt's many cultural sites including the Sphinx, and the Great Pyramid - one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

"You know what? We just completed an wonderful trip".

In her first global solo trip since Donald took office, Trump has been visiting Africa with the ABC special outlining her efforts as she meets with mothers and children in hospitals, schools, and victims of trafficking.

She was welcomed by Egyptian First Lady Intissar Amer al-Sisi, who wore an ankle-length blue dress and matching headscarf.

"I give my honest opinion and honest advice". She came here without Donald Trump and has managed to avoid some of the more uncomfortable situations that previous visitors have faced: President George W Bush encountered elephants mating when he embarked on a safari in Botswana.

Mrs Trump's visit to Kenya was the third stop on her Africa tour, which began on Tuesday in Ghana.

Melania also commented on the supreme court confirmation battle.

"I am honoured to meet the honourable lady, the wife of the American president, in Cairo tomorrow, and to wish her a successful and happy stay in her second country, Egypt", she wrote in Arabic. "(Also, she was photographed in safari attire multiple times on this trip)", a person tweeted.

They went on: 'As far as she's concerned, the hat she wore [in Kenya] was just a hat, so people need to get over it. Melania tries her hardest to tune out the negativity, but of course, it gets to her sometimes...

She toured indoor and outdoor classrooms, observed lessons and watched some students play soccer with balls she donated.
