First lady Melania Trump is planning her first big through several African countries in October.
The first lady said it will be her first time in Africa and she is excited "to educate myself on the issues facing children throughout the continent, while also learning about its rich culture and history."
African countries have been a popular destination for first ladies on goodwill tours that sometimes bring aid or attention to the continent.
Though the White House didn't announce a particular project for the trip, it will be a high-profile chance for Trump to branch out on her own.
Take a look at the last four first ladies' time in Africa:
Before she was first lady, the late Barbara Bush accompanied Vice President George H.W. Bush on a 1985 relief trip to western Sudan, where she helped feed refugees.
First lady Hillary Clinton and her daughter Chelsea embarked on a two-week trip to sub-Saharan Africa in March 1997.
They toured the most notable sights in several countries, including Senegal's House of Slaves, also known as the "door of no return."
The landmark reportedly moved the first lady so much that she told the president to include the stop on his trip the following year.
The Clintons met South African President Nelson Mandela in Cape Town. Former President Bill Clinton stayed behind at the White House to recover from knee surgery.
Mandela gave them a personal tour of the Robben Island jail and cell where he served part of his 27-year sentence.
Earlier that day, the first lady touted Africa's path to democracy to University of Cape Town students, one of whom asked if the US might ever have a female president. "Hope springs eternal," Clinton replied.
While in Cape Town, the first lady signed a wall of a housing shelter that was being built, and announced million in US aid would be dedicated to eradicate polio in Africa by 2000.
Talking to 500 students, Clinton said: "We have an old saying in America that idle hands are the Devil's work. From what I have seen in just a few short days, the Devil will have no help here. South Africa is a country that is too busy to hate."
She returned to the country twice as secretary of state in 2009 and 2012. Clinton would visit dozens of African countries during her tenure as the US's top diplomat.
Former first lady Laura Bush journeyed with her twin daughters to South Africa, Tanzania, and Rwanda in 2005.
One of their stops brought them together with Rwandan children involved in an AIDS project, two years after her husband's administration established a billion-dollar global AIDS plan.
Bush made five goodwill trips in her husband's second term. In a February 2008 trip, the president and first lady received honors of distinction from Liberia's President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, the first elected female head of state in Africa.
Former first Michelle Obama's emphasis on domestic policy and relatively young children resulted in her having half as many foreign trips as her predecessors, but she visited South Africa and Botswana in 2011.
