Driving Directions Equatorial Guinea
EQUATORIAL GUINEA lies about 200 kilometers or 124 miles north of the Equator on the hot, humid coast of West Africa. The country consists of a square-shaped mainland area (Mbini) with its few small offshore islets and the islands of Bioko and Pagalu (Annobon). The mainland has a densely forested, rolling landscape broken by some hills. Bioko is a very fertile volcanic island with two high mountains, steep slopes, and tropical jungle and it is here that the capital, Malabo, is sited beside a volcanic crater flooded by the sea.
