Beni is a city in north eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, lying immediately west of the Virunga National Park and the Rwenzori Mountains, on the edge of the Ituri Forest.

The town is linked by road to Bukavu the capital of the south Kivu province, and Burundi.

Beni was the scene of fierce fighting in the second Congo War around 2001, it also has many MONUSCO bases; elements of the Indian-led North Kivu Brigade are based in the town.

Between October 2014 and May 2016 over 500 people died in a series of attacks on Beni and its surrounding area that have been attributed to Ugandan Islamist rebels. The Beni massacre occurred here in August 2016.
