Ibn Battuta (1304-1368) was a Moroccan Berber Muslim and scholar who has become one of the most famous travellers of all time. When he was twenty-one years old, Ibn Battuta set off for Makkah to perform Hajj. He would not return to Morocco for over twenty years. Over the course of his voyage, Ibn Battuta traveled to 44 modern countries and traversed nearly 75,000 miles-a distance that easily surpassed his predecessors, as well as his near contemporary, Marco Polo.
