Secret Service jumps in after baby elephant charges at Melania Trump in Kenya

Melania Trump visited Nairobi's National Park on Friday as part of her 4-country, 5-day solo tour of Africa. There, the first lady met with park rangers to learn about Kenya's ongoing conservation efforts and embark on a safari through the park. 

FLOTUS also had the chance to meet and feed two of the baby elephants being raised in the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage. However, one of the elephants got a little too excited and charged at Melania, causing her to jump. A secret service agent then rushed in to pull Melania back and away from the animal. 

You can see the startling moment unfold in the video above and images below.

The wildlife trust is one of the most successful rescue and rehabilitation organizations in the world. Since its establishment in 1977, the organization has "hand-raised" 150 elephants as well as black rhinos. 

Melania then visited The Nest, an organization for children whose parents have been incarcerated, where she was met by a group of singing and dancing children. The first lady joined in on the dancing, holding their hands as she walked around the facility. 

As part of her international "Be Best" initiative, FLOTUS also donated more supplies to organization. 

Kenya marks the second-to-last leg of her solo tour. Next, Trump will fly to Egypt, where she'll learn about the country's relationship with the US and their humanitarian efforts.
