The Benito is a river in Equatorial Guinea. It is known locally as the Mbini River. It divides the country roughly along the middle, running east to west. At the mouth to the Atlantic Ocean lies the town of Mbini, as well as large mangrove stands that extend 20 km inland. [1] Only this 20km portion of the river is navigable. The river is used to float logs for forestry operations. [2]
