Francis Moore (c. 1708 - c. 1756) was a British traveler and writer, and one of the first Englishmen to travel to the African interior. He had been employed as a clerk for the Royal African Company, and was sent to the company's factory at the Gambia River in 1730 where he became the company's factor. He stayed until 1735. He is best known for his 1738 Travels into the Inland Parts of Africa, in which he recorded the observations of his travels; this short book details the cultural geography of West Africa just prior to the 18th century intensification of the Atlantic slave trade. It is the only account of Gambia prior to the colonial period.

Following his time in Africa, Moore sailed to Georgia as part of Oglethorpe's colonial effort there; he served as Oglethorpe's secretary, and a storekeeper at Fort Frederica. As with his Africa voyage, Moore published his observations in A Voyage to Georgia.
