The 88-year-old has been under treatment for prostate cancer for many years.
After visiting the Arch in hospital this week, retired Cape Town archbishop Njongonkulu Ndungane said he was "as alert as ever and appeared to be well on the way to recovery".
Tutu stepped back into the public eye when he met the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their baby Archie during the royal visit.
He also made a public appearance to celebrate the Springboks' World Cup win.
