Tim Mackintosh-Smith (born 17 July 1961) is a British, Yemen-based author.

Mackintosh-Smith lives in an ancient tower house off the "Market of the Cows" in the old city of San'a, Yemen. He is the author of the Thomas Cook/Daily Telegraph prize winning Yemen: Travels in Dictionaryland (1997), and more recently Yemen: The Unknown Arabia (2000), and the first two volumes of his journeys in "the footnotes" of Ibn Battutah; Travels with A Tangerine (2001) and The Hall of a Thousand Columns (2005).

He has written widely on subjects as broad as the collection of frankincense, the stories of M.R. James and the history of umbrellas. He has featured in a documentary film The English Sheik and the Yemeni Gentleman, and is presenting a BBC documentary series recreating the experience of tracing Ibn Battutah's fourteenth century travels into the present day. Despite his refuge in a distant corner of Arabia, Tim has succeeded in becoming celebrated among the literati of Europe and the Americas. He has a treatment for a feature film about the modern day descendants of Ibn Battutah.
