Aamir, you'll need to fly straight to Mombasa on the coast (1hr), as Nairobi is in the highlands. Mombasa Backpackers will look after you I'm sure. They're on Facebook. They can arrange all sorts of water sports and they're only a 5-minute walk to the beach. Plus they have a pool, bar, restaurant and lots of people to share information with. As for your three-day jungle safari, I would sign up for a two night stay at Shimba Lodge, in the Shimba Hills National Park. It's relatively expensive if you're on a backpacking budget, but you will experience very atmospheric jungle scenes (the lodge is by a water hole and nicely integrated into the forest) and you can hike with a wildlife service ranger down to the waterfalls and do some wildlife spotting game drives around the park.

Have a great trip.
