    Anyone know the equipment the SAA has and uses , for inland water ways ?

      This lake looks like a series of swamps and dried beds. Perhaps when there’s a bigger rain, it becomes a shallow but contiguous “lake”. So I don’t think they have any specialized equipment.

        It’s a salt lake.

          It looks lot like vast Australian inland salt lakes – Syria roughly same distance north of equator as Australia is south of it – which is interesting as suggests bands of salt lakes in a rough central horizontal zone.

      That’s a desert salt lake, will get mushy here and there – but four wheel drive is all that’s required!
