HI Jamal, 

I'm assuming that you are referring to navigation tools that navigate the map as opposed to navigating the page. In order to use the Explore tool (which pans and zooms) within a map on a page layout you will need to activate the map frame (select the map frame, right-click and choose Activate.  This experience should be the same as if you were working with a map view.

When the map frame is not activated you can still do some map navigation by using the commands available from the Layout tab on the ribbon as you highlighted above.For more information please refer to Work with a map on a layout—Layouts | Documentation 

Hope this helps, 

Tom
