Brake/clutch fluid: If dot3/4 is recommended for europe, what would we use in africa? 3 or 4?

The manual says: Except for Europe : Dot 3

...but DOT4 brake fluid has a higher boiling point than DOT3 so personally I would opt for 4

Dot 4 has a higher boiling point, but is more hygroscopic (absorbs water faster).

So use Dot4, but then replace brake fluid annually...
