She recently launched a USA -based effort focused on the well-being of children.

It is not yet clear where the US First Lady will travel on the vast continent or when, but according to her communications director Stephanie Grisham, the White House "will release details in the coming weeks".

The swing through Africa will be the farthest Mrs. Trump has traveled on her own since becoming first lady in January 2017.

The US president has yet to travel to Africa since taking office and has allegedly disparaged "shithole" countries on the continent.

Her only solo worldwide trip was in September 2017 when she flew to Toronto for a day and joined Britain's Prince Harry for an Olympic-style athletic competition he established for wounded service members and veterans.

She had visited many global destinations while accompanying Trump, which includes Saudi Arabia, Israel, Italy, France, Poland, Turkey, China, South Korea, Japan, England and Belgium.
