Before proceeding to the slave castle, she visited the palace of the head chief of the area and obtained royal approval to visit the fortress after USA officials presented a gift of drinks to the chiefs.

Melania, who has so far spent her time in Africa visiting children in schools and hospital patients, said the castle is 'really something that people should see and experience'.

The US first lady stepped off an overnight flight from Andrews Airforce Base near Washington and onto a red carpet at Accra's Kotoka International Airport.

Mrs. Trump arrived at the castle after an approximately 2 1/2-hour early morning drive from Accra, the capital city, where she has stayed since opening her first extended worldwide trip as first lady on Tuesday.

"It's very emotional. I will never forget (the) incredible experience and the stories that I heard", she said after seeing the dungeons and walking through the "door of no return", the castle's final exit toward the Atlantic Ocean.
