Im looking for books or info about some Muslim Arab Travelers to Africa in the 14th-17th century. Would anybody know of any other than Ibn Battuta?

Not precisely in that time frame.
 
 
But here are some others. And they were variously doing or involved with varying professions. Almost all traveled as part of their commitment to the Hajj.
 
Muhammad ibn Hawqal
 
Ibn Jubair
 
Muhammad al-Muqaddasi
 
Ahmad ibn Majid
 
Muhammad al-Idrisi
 
Abu al-Hasan al-Mas’udi
