Melania Trump recently wrapped up her first solo trip as the First Lady of the U.S, which saw her visit Ghana, Malawi, Kenya and Egypt. Her tour was seen by many as an attempt to improve her image and somehow improve African's negative perception about the Trump administration. Here, we delve a bit deeper into the countries she visited:
Kenya is one of the most popular tourist attractions on the continent. It's warm and humid coastline, abundant flora and fauna, temperate savannah grasslands and incredibly diverse wildlife make for an attractive tourist destination. In 2015, the country was voted as the world’s leading safari destination at the World Travel Awards. Some of its most renowned safari destinations are the Amboseli National Park, Maasai Mara and Lake Nakuru National Park. On the downside, Kenya is one of the most corrupt countries in the world and has been rebuked over the years for its intolerance to homosexual acts.
Interesting fact: Lake Victoria, the world's largest tropical freshwater lake.
