We've Got You Clooney: Here's Your Perfect Honeymoon
George Clooney is finally settling down. But the middle-aged man candy is a busy guy—and his fiancée, international lawyer Amal Alamuddin, is even busier—so we here at Yahoo Travel decided to step in and give the couple a hand. We know how crazy wedding planning can be, but don’t worry George: we’ve got your back. Yesterday, we gave you the perfect wedding cake for your destination wedding and today, Yahoo Travel has pitched in to plan your perfect honeymoon.

The Off-the-Grid Adventure
It ain’t easy for the paparazzi to track you down in a yurt in Mongolia’s Gobi desert. Amid towering sand dunes and dramatic canyons, Three Camel Lodge blends adventure with luxury. George and Amal can savor the Mongolian Steppe while making new friends with the nomads. The giddy newlyweds can bask in their matrimonial glow at the legendary Flaming Cliffs, the red-orange sandstone peaks that shine brilliantly during sunset. Sure there may be beetles in the showers, but nothing encourages a cuddle like cold desert temperatures and camel-hair blankets.
The Safari Splurge
Since they began dating in October, the globetrotting duo has been spotted sipping tropical fruit juices in the Seychelles and touring Tanzania on a wildlife safari. The Africa veterans will love the newest addition to &Beyond’s portfolio of luxury lodges and camps: Mozambique’s soon-to-open Benguerra Island Lodge. When it debuts this June, this dazzling oasis will allow the jet-set duo to explore untouched beaches and coral reefs. Or they can relax in a private casita, lounge on hand-woven hammocks slung between indigenous coastal trees, and head out in a traditional dhow or sea kayak to search for a glimpse of the rare Sirenian dugong. (And you know that is at the top of George’s bucket list.)
