Tutu Falls is located close to Meriwau Village in the South Rupununi Savannahs of Guyana, South America. It can be reached by driving a 4-wheel drive vehicle, ATV, or motorcycle down the rugged trail for about two hours from Lethem. The refreshing waters of the Tutu Falls forms a pool on a mountaintop before cascading down the mountain.

Although there is some danger associated with exploring Tutu Falls, adventurous persons climb the mountain to splash in the pool. Reportedly, the mountaintop pool is more dangerous (slippery) during the rainy season which increases the risk of getting washed down the mountain. A young British volunteer teacher in the Rupununi tragically lost her life after falling down the mountaintop pool at Tutu Falls several years ago.
