Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas:

The Prophet ﷺ said: (the narrator Sufyan said: I do not know but that it [the tradition] has been transmitted from the Prophet ﷺ: He who lives in the desert will become rude; he who pursues the game will be negligent, and he who visits a king will be perverted.
حَدَّثَنَا مُسَدَّدٌ، حَدَّثَنَا يَحْيَى، عَنْ سُفْيَانَ، حَدَّثَنِي أَبُو مُوسَى، عَنْ وَهْبِ بْنِ مُنَبِّهٍ، عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم - وَقَالَ مَرَّةً سُفْيَانُ وَلاَ أَعْلَمُهُ إِلاَّ عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم - وَقَالَ ‏
"‏ مَنْ سَكَنَ الْبَادِيَةَ جَفَا وَمَنِ اتَّبَعَ الصَّيْدَ غَفَلَ وَمَنْ أَتَى السُّلْطَانَ افْتُتِنَ ‏"‏ ‏.‏
