How do we choose a Sabi Sands safari?

We are two well travelled adults but Africa/Safari novices looking to put together up to a 3 week holiday in South Africa. We'd like to spend a few nights in Cape Town, some time exploring the country by car, perhaps by flying to Durban and driving up from there, and some time on safari - perhaps 4 nights. We've had the Kruger western flank and particularly Sabi Sands recommended for the safari experience and are perhaps less busy with (other) tourists? Having had an initial browse of safaris/lodges on offer we're feeling slightly overwhelmed at the range and some of the prices (Londolozi, Lion Sands). We're not looking for completely budget but probably more in the mid-price range. Without wanting to cause any offence we'd also prefer a more adult oriented safari rather than an experience geared towards families with young children. And not forgetting, of course, the quality of the flora and fauna to be seen - we're interested in all of it. We usually prefer to put our holidays together ourselves and be independent, and at the moment that's what were looking to do. We're also hoping for better flexibility (if we're driving and find somewhere we like we'd like to be able to stay on a few days), and value for money, but perhaps for this holiday a package would better tick these boxes? Any tips would be much appreciated?

Cape Rainbow Tours offer safari trips to Aquila Private Game Reserve, which includes game drives, and also day trips to Hermanus to see the whales and take in the lovely scenery en route.
