First stop Oscars, next stop Mongolia. 

Leonardo DiCaprio dropped $95,000 for a Mongolian expedition at the star-studded amfAR charity auction Wednesday night. 

After a relaxed but persistent bidding war, DiCaprio edged out the competition and secured the trip, which will be led by world renowned adventure explorer Johan Ernst Nilson. 

All proceeds from the gala – which included a pricey piece by Andy Warhol and a Timothy White photograph of Elizabeth Taylor – will benefit amfAr, the international foundation for AIDS research.

During his speech, Weinstein received a round of applause from the audience after taking time to praise DiCaprio's latest work in The Revenant

"As an Academy member, you're not allowed to endorse somebody else when they're up for an Academy Award and if you do, there's a good chance you'll lose your membership," Weinstein said. "But I have to tell you Leo DiCaprio is so amazing in The Revenant."
